Two years ago, I read about MIT open-sourcing its coursework and thought it was a great idea. I went there immediately and saw practically nothing of interest. They’ve apparently been busy these last couple of years. Wired has a great article about how far it’s come and where it’s going. I may just have to look into it to get the computer science education I never had.
[UPDATE: Hmm, the article didn’t give a URL for MIT’s OpenCourseWare. Weird.]
