  1. I use these MIT courses to supplement my formal education. I am 40yrs old and working toward a Bachelors degree in Electronics Engineering Technology. My professors ask me all the time why I am not going for my Engineering degree. Unfortunately I can’t go to a B&M university to get a degree at this time because of family obligations. This is helping me get the knowledge I would get from B&M.

  2. The course materials for 6.002 were last updated in Spring 2007. However, the videos presented in this section are taken from the Fall 2000 version. Everything produced before Fall 2006 was published in quarter screen video (320×240). See the course for complete details. Follow the link in the video description.

  3. Or alternatively, we could have the government fund the entire activity 100% if we’re worried about Coca Cola indoctrinating students. Either way, the main reason education cost a lot in the past is because the experts were a scarce resource and simply couldn’t reach the entire world via video. That’s no longer the case and everyone benefits from the increase in productivity.

  4. Now, of course, the teachers at places like MIT are capable people and will not have any trouble finding alternative jobs as engineers, causing us to enjoy faster development of technology. Even if they failed at this and they all became bums, the increased competence of the population due to free lecture distribution could easily pay their welfare a thousand times over.

  5. Arguing like that is a lot like arguing that we shouldn’t automate agriculture, because then, how would the farmers eat if they’re no longer needed to grow food? The answer is that you need a hell of a lot less of them, and they have to find something else to do. Same thing with education, only the efficiency gains in education can be far greater. I can easily see a single education institution simply winning global education and financing everything with commercials.

  6. CJ Math is correct, if mit releases all their video then who will attend their class? who will pay their tuition? education should’nt be free. this is how it should be or else our economy will fall.

  7. So people should teach for free? How will they afford to eat? buy a house? Should they teach for free on there free time as a second job? Maybe, i should decide what you should do for free for m on your free time?
