web.mit.edu/ocw/At a press conference on April 4, 2001, MIT announced its commitment to make the materials from virtually all of its courses freely available on the World Wide Web for non-commercial use.
Anybody looking into this? What do you all think? Should university level education be a free world wide resource? Should you be able to get a degree from a free online university? How would they be funded? Maybe they would offer instructed classes where they are located and leave the free stuff to be maintained and overseen automatically via the web servers.. ? Just thought this was interesting. Would you hire someone who had their degree from MIT's free program (should that be a possibility in the future)? At least it looks like they will be offering a lot of free non-credit classes in just a few months.
