MIT Online Classes For Free

Monday, November 19th, 2012 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites, Using The Internet

How much do you think a typical four-year education at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT for short) would cost you? $228,040 (and that doesn’t even count books or Mt. Dew money!)

But how would you feel if I told you that you can take online courses from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology free of charge?

This amazing program is called MIT OpenCourseWare, and contains courses feature video lessons, power point presentations assignments, reading material and related course work. The project was announced in 2001 and has developed into a catalog of over 2,100 courses, covering nearly all subjects taught at the prestigious school. These are not brief overviews or simple summaries, but the actual course material and information taught to MIT students.

The course material is provided free of charge by MIT, and each course represents an investment by the university of between 15,000 and 20,000 dollars, with video courses easily doubling that cost. So why pay to attend MIT when you can get the course work free at OpenCourseWare? The big sticking point is the lack of accreditation  None of the courses you take will count as college credit towards a degree, nor will having taken these courses entitle you to claim you attended or studied at MIT.

Yet. if you want to expand your horizons, learn a new subject or brush up on your existing knowledge, this fantastic resource is hands down the highest quality and cheapest way. You can view all of the MIT OpenCourseWare catalog by clicking here.
