Open Source Education

The concept of Open Source is catching on. First there was Open SOurce software, then I read about Open Source building construction, yesterday I read about Open Source Education. MIT has opened up its course material and makes it available freely to anyone via the Internet. Of course, having the course material is not the same as receiving the class in person, but this is a gigantic step forward. Having access to world class teaching material is a great opportunity for a large pool of seriously interested students. The move of MIT to make this material available is admirable. Read more about it on the MIT OpenCourseWare site.
