MIT Video Courses on Evolution

Ten years ago, the MIT faculty made a bold decision to support global education by openly sharing their intellectual resources at no charge to anyone anywhere in the world. Over these ten years, OCW content has reached 100 million individuals and MIT has helped to spark an open education revolution that now includes hundreds of universities and organizations sharing courseware, text books and other digital learning resources.

 

In 1999, MIT Faculty considered how to use the Internet in pursuit of MIT’s mission—to advance knowledge and educate students—and in 2000 proposed OCW. MIT published the first proof-of-concept site in 2002, containing 50 courses. By November 2007, MIT completed the initial publication of virtually the entire curriculum, over 1,800 courses in 33 academic disciplines. Going forward, the OCW team is updating existing courses and adding new content and services to the site.
