What is MIT OpenCourseWare?
MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW) is a permanent free web-based publication of virtually all MIT course content and is open and available to anyone around the world. The over 2100 OCW course materials reflect almost all the undergraduate and graduate subjects taught at MIT. Whether you want to improve on your present skill, refresh your memory, decide on the right field for you to go into or want to learn at your own space for your own benefit, MIT OpenCourseWare provides the opportunity. You get access to free lecture notes, exams, and audio and videos contents from MIT. No registration required.
You can browse courses by department or use the advanced search to locate a specific course or topic. High school students and educators should check out Highlights for High School at http://ocw.mit.edu/high-school
What MIT OpenCourseWare is NOT
- OCW is not an MIT education.
- OCW does not grant degrees or certificates.
- OCW does not provide access to MIT faculty.
- Materials may not reflect entire content of the course.
How to register to use MIT OpenCourseWare
There is no registration or enrollment process because OCW is not a credit-bearing or degree-granting initiative.
Can I get a certificate?
No. MIT OpenCourseWare is a publication of the course materials that support the dynamic classroom interactions of an MIT education; it is not a degree-granting or credit-bearing initiative. However, you should work through the materials at your own pace, and in whatever manner you desire.
If you want a degree or certificate education, you either have to take online learning programs from an accredited online university or attend a tradition institution.
