In my last post I talked about the initiative of the University of California Berkeley and their uploaded classes to YouTube. Today I’ll talk about an older initiative called OpenCourseware.

It was started by the MIT as a way to provide a new model for the dissemination of knowledge. This initiative was then followed by other universities, starting a new movement to spread scientific knowledge without the need to go to classes.

All this open educational resources finally formed the OpenCourseWare Consortium, which aims to extend the reach of this materials.

Following an OpenCourseWare doesn’t get you any diploma, you just do it because you have an interest in some field and this is a perfect way to get good information about it.

So, where to get any of this courses? Have a look at the list of participant universities, browse through the materials offered by any university… and start learning!
