This week, MIT’s OpenCourseWare project launched OCW Scholar, a new series of courses “designed for independent learners who have few additional resources available to them.” To date, MIT has given students access to isolated materials from MIT courses. Now, with this new initiative, lifelong learners can work with a more rounded set of resources. OWC Scholar takes video lectures, homework problems, problem solving videos, simulations, readings, etc., and stitches them into a structured curriculum. Perfect for the self-disciplined student.
Below we have listed the first five courses in the OWC Scholar collection. (They’re entirely free.) Fast forward three years and you will find 20 courses online, says MIT. All will be added to our big list of Free Online Courses.
Physics 1: Classical Mechanics
Physics II: Electricity and Magnetism
Introduction to Solid State Chemistry
Single Variable Calculus
MIT should have an ongoing course where students improve the learning platform that these online classes are delivered. It’s pretty terrible right now, but could be so much better if it were improved by the students each year.
I would like to join the online this is the grade opportunity for me.Please let me know how I can get involved to learn. Thanks
This is interesting for the independent learners as my self.
I have been hearing a lot about MIT and how competent they are. I’ll love to learn and know about programming but I have no money. If I can get a free complete training from you it will my pleasure.
