MIT Introduces Complete Courses to OpenCourseWare Project

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
Mul­ti­vari­able 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.
