India’s Answer to M.I.T. Presents Free Courses on YouTube (in English)

Lots of newsprint has been ded­i­cat­ed to MIT’s Open­Course­Ware ini­tia­tive. And, of course, it’s under­stand­able. MIT’s project offers free access to mate­ri­als from 1800 MIT cours­es, many on the cut­ting edge of tech­nol­o­gy and engi­neer­ing. It is all great. But sud­den­ly MIT is not the only tech pow­er­house get­ting into the busi­ness of pro­vid­ing free edu­ca­tion­al resources.

In India, there are sev­en insti­tutes ded­i­cat­ed to train­ing some of the world’s top sci­en­tists and engi­neers and mak­ing the coun­try an up and com­ing world pow­er. They are col­lec­tive­ly known as the IITs, or the Indi­an Insti­tutes of Tech­nol­o­gy. And now some of the IIT cours­es are being made avail­able in Eng­lish on YouTube for free. (The main page is here; the cours­es are actu­al­ly here.) Some of the titles fea­tured here include: Intro­duc­tion to Com­put­er Graph­ics, Core Sci­ence Math­e­mat­ics, Com­put­er Net­works, Intro­duc­tion To Prob­lem Solv­ing & Pro­gram­ming, Flu­id Mechan­ics, and Envi­ron­men­tal Air Pol­lu­tion.

You can access the full list of IIT cours­es here. And note that we have inte­grat­ed many of these cours­es into our col­lec­tion: Free Online Cours­es from Great Uni­ver­si­ties, which now fea­tures more than 225 free cours­es.
