"The Massachusetts Institute of Technology--in an unprecedented step in world-wide education--announced today it plans to make the materials for nearly all its courses freely available on the Internet over the next ten years."

"The website for the project--MIT OpenCourseWare--would include material such as lecture notes, course outlines, reading lists, and assignments for each course. Over the next decade, the project expects to provide materials for over 2,000 courses across MIT's entire curriculum--in architecture and planning, engineering, humanities, arts, social sciences, management, and science."

"The MIT OCW infrastructure could serve as a model for other institutions that choose to make similar content open and available."
