This is unbelievable! More power to them..... well, insofar as their teaching is not strangled with PC.

But this is unbelievable! Major major major.

The
Massachusetts Institute of Technology has begun the most revolutionary
experiment in the history of education, stretching all the way back to
the pharaohs. It now gives away its curriculum to anyone smart enough
to learn it. <a href="http://ssomail.charter.net/do/redirect?url=http%253A%252F%252Focw.mit.edu%252FOc wWeb%252Fweb%252Fhome%252Fhome%252Findex.htm" target="_blank" target="_blank">It has posted
its curriculum on-line for free.</a> These days, this means a
staggering 1900 courses. This number will grow.</font>
This is proof
to the academic world that MIT regards its program as the best, and
dares any other institution to prove otherwise, where everyone can see
and compare. The free site validates the MIT T-shirt: HARVARD:
Because not everyone can get into MIT

MIT has
publicly stiffed its main rival for the title of the best science
university on earth. That rival is the California Institute of
Technology. CalTech will forever play catch-up to MIT on-line. It will
be "We, Too On-line University."</font>
Students around
the world can see for themselves that MIT has what it takes to be the
best. They can test drive the entire curriculum.</font>
Top students
all over the world still want to attend MIT. They want a diploma that
has MIT's name on it. The free site does not reduce demand for an MIT
diploma. It increases it.</font>
MIT has
up-ended several millennia of higher education. Let me explain..............</font>
