Actual People using MIT Open Courseware

“Wired” is running an article on people using MIT’s Open Courseware which they opened up in 2001. The gist of the idea is that MIT is making the content of their courses available but not awarding any degrees. To all those knowledge seekers this is really great. If I had more time I’d spend more time looking through some of the course offerings on some engineering topics I’ve always wanted to explore but never had the time/resources/inclination to enroll in a course just to learn it. At least now it’s more of a matter of time and inclination rather than resources.

Interestingly enough, the person highlighted in the article is from Vietnam one of the poorest countries around. I find that really neat. (Disclaimer: I originally hail from there too).
