MIT OpenCourseWare- A cutting edge over technology or maybe,not?

Posted on July 31, 2007. Filed under: Education |

..MIT(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) provides OpenCourseware to users all around the globe to have an edge over technology.Now, you have the opportunity to pick your own undergraduate curriculum and gain an MIT education for free. With all the audio and video lectures, It certainly proves to be of great help in most developing nations. These are said by MIT authority but…

So, Is it an MIT standardised education? I don’t think so.. Education needs professors. It’s not even close to MIT standards. More importantly, MIT Opencourseware are nothing but some online tutorials supported by some audio & video lectures. With all those millions of tutorials around, Does it prove any good? Certainly, not… Maybe, They should have started not with an MIT education for free but something like “MIT like education for free”.

That’s silly saying “MIT like education for free.” That’s not even close, you can get a chance to see how subjects are taught at MIT but i have no idea where people get this “MIT like education for free” from.

I am a physics student and have been watching OCW’s physics lectures additionally to my courses. Great supplementary material, that’s it.

Of course, their lectures are so great that I have now a dream of going to MIT for M.Sc. But the OCW alone can’t replace even 10% of what you get when you study at MIT.

Meanwhile, you might be interested in other video lectures at my blog:

I have collected hundreds of links to lectures in maths, physics, chemistry, engineering, computer science and many many more. Check it out! 🙂

Yeah.. That’s true. Just some online contents can’t make it as an education.
And thanks for your comments
