Default Get a free education from MIT

http://ocw.mit.edu/OcwWeb/Global/all-courses.htm

This is killer, MIT has all of their course materials and lectures for free online, the only thing is that you don't get a degree obviously. For somebody who doesn't have $50,000 for a year of school and just wants the knowledge this is freakin great.

This just further proves my opinion that when you send in your tuition check, you aren't paying for an education, you are putting a down payment on a piece of paper.

Exactly, but that piece of paper is a requirement at many jobs and would likely be the deciding factor for an employer with one job opening looking at a person with it and without it.

This is actually really cool. As an Econ major here I can look at different slides to gain new perspectives or find more practice problems. Props to whoever found this.

No problem guys, it's definitely an amazing resource. They were talking about it on NPR last night, that's how I found out.

I'd like to give a shout out to all my peeps over at NPR and PBS, I couldn't have done it without you. :)

i'm far too lazy to pull them up, but there are several colleges that do the same thing, with varying degrees of material (i believe MIT's is the most compelte). one of the big Cal university's has all their material up, and there are at least a couple of law schools that do. Computer Power User (yes, I'm that big a geek) ran the story last month.

I thought this was spam, until I saw the poster. Then I was sure it was spam.

Anyways, MIT is for hippies.

Do you get any sort of recognition? That would help you get into a very good school or say get a part scholarship

I doubt it, because it can't be proven and I don't think colleges would look for that info.

I'm taking 16 hours, and only one class doesn't take attendance. You could get away with that in lower level courses held in auditoriums, but not actually interesting courses.

Who wants a college education anyway?

And Ward, for second year Criminology, there's still over 100 people in my class. We have random people come in all the time. It just depends on the University you go to.

I was making a joke that most University students make about college, in order to justify why they are better. I was also being completely sarcastic, and I don't know how the hell you could have thought that I have anything against post-secondary education when I stated I'm in University.

But thanks for being horribly slow on the uptake, and forcing me to waste 2 minutes of my life posting this. I have a feeling you were left behind a lot as a child.
