The MIT OpenCourseWare project launched with a preliminary pilot that just scratches the surface of MIT's publishing ambitions. People with an Internet connection and a Web browser have been able to access the syllabus, lecture notes, exams and answers, and in some cases, even the videotaped lectures of 32 MIT courses.
So far, more than 130,000 Web visitors from around the world have plugged into the pilot, tapping into a vein of information for which MIT undergraduates pay $26,960 per year for tuition.
"This material is out there for the good of mankind,". "There is no attempt to charge for this. There is no revenue model."
By the 2006-2007 school year, MIT plans to publish the course materials for virtually all of its 2,000 graduate and undergraduate courses.
The move to put the materials online stems from a multiyear effort by the MIT faculty to forge a unified approach to online access to its classes. The faculty's efforts picked up pace while two related Internet phenomena--distance learning and open-source software--were gathering steam.
MIT embraced a comparison to the open-source model, in which the source code for both grass-roots and corporate software titles is published, developed and licensed free of charge.
"We are fighting the commercialization of knowledge, much in the same way that open-source people are fighting the commercialization of software," .
No free degree
MIT has stopped short of offering its degrees with a similarly free pricing scheme. The university insists that its online course materials--even when the full 2000 courses' worth are published--are not meant to be a substitute for an MIT education, much less an MIT degree. No course credits are available online.
