MIT OpenCourseWare

Since 2001, MIT OpenCourseWare has been creating new opportunities for millions of learners and educators, sharing Open Educational Resources (OER) from MIT and helping to lead a global revolution in free access to knowledge.

MIT OpenCourseWare continues to build on this foundation. With a new web platform, ever-growing content, and collaborations
across the vibrant open education ecosystem, we’re creating a world of more equitable and inclusive education for all.

MIT OpenCourseWare is a free and open collection of material from thousands of MIT courses, covering the entire MIT curriculum.

Knowledge is your reward. Use OCW to guide your own life-long learning, or to teach others. MIT does not offer credit or certification to users of OCW – and asks for nothing in return.

No enrollment or registration. Freely browse and use OCW materials at your own pace. There’s no signup, and no start or end dates.

Made for sharing. Download files for later. Send to friends and colleagues. Modify, remix, and reuse (just remember to cite OCW as the source.)

OpenCourseWare (OCW) refers to educational materials and resources that are made available online for free by universities and other educational institutions. These materials can include lecture notes, videos, assignments, exams, and other resources that are typically used in traditional face-to-face courses. OCW is often licensed under Creative Commons, which allows for the materials to be freely shared, reused, and modified by anyone.

The first institution to launch an OCW initiative was the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2001, and since then many other universities and colleges have followed suit. Some of the most popular OCW platforms include MIT OpenCourseWare, Harvard OpenCourseWare, and Coursera.

OCW has made high-quality educational resources accessible to people all over the world, regardless of their geographic location or financial means. It has also allowed for self-directed learning and lifelong learning, where individuals can explore topics of interest or enhance their professional skills at their own pace and on their own schedule.

If you’re looking for open courses via your local or state college or university, try a search that includes their name and “OCW”, or “OpenCourseWare” – and let us know when it works for you!
