Open Learning

Technology makes learning possible no matter where you are, who you are, when you are, and how poor you are.  As long as you have a desire to learn, you can find ways to learn online.  The Web opens possibilities for learners worldwide.  This is one of the best things about the use of technology in education and training.  Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) leads the open learning movement by launching the OpenCourseWare (OCW) in 2001.  OCW has provided free lecture notes, homework problems, exams, streaming videos, and other resources from more than 1900 courses spanning MIT’s entire curriculum.  These instructional/learning materials are free and openly available to anyone, anywhere in the world.
