Free, Quality, Online MIT Education

A fascinating article on a new movement among some very big colleges: offering their entire curriculum for free, online. No worry about prerequisites, but no credits either and no diplomas, just learning, just education -- just enroll in a class at MIT and take it... are you interested in Physics, 20th Century Art History, Drama, Poetry? Take the real class, the same MIT class anyone else would take if they actually, physically were sitting at MIT... all free, all online, all out of your own home.

If you love learning --- goodness, you just struck gold. Read the long, interesting article at that first link... and then take a look at all the courses available at the second link.
