Free Lectures/Seminars About the MIT move to make course materials for 1800 courses available online for free . . . Intellectual Philanthropy “ OpenCourseWare (OCW) provides free access to course materials such as syllabi, video or audio lectures, notes, homework assignments, illustrations, and so on. So far, by giving away their content, the universities aren't discouraging students from enrolling as students. Instead, the online materials appear to be only whetting appetites for more.” Gregory M. Lamb, The Christian Science Monitor
