MIT: Home of Open Course Ware!
Now this has to be the best thing I have come across in academia. MIT has opened up all of its course syllabi, all of its lecture notes, and all of the course outlines online.
What a terrific resource this is! Talk about not having to reinvent the wheel. Want to learn about linguistics? Why – just read the lecture notes and course material for the Introduction to Linguistics right here! It’s almost like auditing the course for free (only you miss out on the professors. . . which is a bad thing, but it shows the confidence MIT has in its teaching staff).
Outstanding resource. Go learn something courtesy of MIT!!!
