The new educational paradigm

Just when you think you’ll never be able to afford a college education, along comes MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and turns all that on it’s head. Mit and it’s Open Courseware project aims to get all it’s courses, including video and audio of lectures, on the web by 2008, and of course, free! I sat thru an electronics lecture last saturday, and it was an eye opening experience.

Sadly this is not a degree program, and you don’t have access to faculty, but what you do have access to is knowledge. This takes libraries to a whole new level. They have a mission statement to the effect that they want to share their knowledge with the world… Just sharing it with me is ok!, but I guess we should include the rest of the world also.

Not only that, but several other institutions are following suit with their own versions of this very same thing… Ck out Berkeley at:

Well, gotta catch up on my Byzantine history… Greg
