3. Views from Visitors - How OCW Makes a Difference


“OpenCourseWare is such great endeavor, and I'm proud to be an alumna of an institute that supports and encourages education in this way. I've been using it to review courses I took 10 years ago to prepare for an interview, and it's been a huge help, especially the videos and detailed lecture notes. But mostly I appreciate the service MIT is doing for the world and the example it's setting by providing such valuable and empowering information free to the entire world....”
