Title: MIT Open Course Ware. Free Education from MIT! Minus government degree
Post by: helio on December 20, 2010, 02:18:53 PM
Ran across this on youtube today.  MIT has basically given away its courseware, lectures, exams, etc for free, online.

This is HUGE for me as my preferred area of activisim is economic.  I want to start a variety of businesses, but the current state of education and technical skill is lacking.  I read that there are only a quarter of a million mechanical engineers in the united states.  Just about all of my major business ideas requires one or more.  How many of us are skilled professionals with work experience? Few I would imagine.  So lets learn, without pieces of government certification or approval. 

My hat is off to MIT for opening the floodgates of knowledge.  I never took calculus and really need to have a grasp of it for many of the projects I want to undertake.  So, with OpenCourseWare, I'm gonna learn.
