MIT Open Courseware Site

What an incredible concept…  MIT, which can cost $40K annually, is giving away their content…  whazzup with that?  It’s a great story.  CNN has picked it up, and produced a story about it. 

Check out the streaming video file of the CNN program on the MIT OCW Web site. These videos are in Real Player format at speeds of (220K) (80K) (56K). The videos are also highlighted on the MIT OCW homepage, and on the MIT OCW Media Coverage page.
