  2. Thank you. It’s a pleasure to be here. Thanks to XXX for inviting me to speak about MIT OpenCourseWare.My name is XXXXX and I am XXXXX for MIT OpenCourseWare.
  3. In that initial proposal for OpenCourseWare, the faculty committee articulated a dual mission for OCW.The first part was to publish materials from all of MIT’s courses, and they felt very strongly on this point. They wanted OCW to represent the academic diversity of MIT, including not just the science, math and engineering subjects for which the Institute was best known, but also the humanities, social sciences, health sciences and other disciplines that were taught with a unique MIT flavor. And they set the goal of publishing all MIT courses well before anyone sat down to figure out how expensive it might be.The second goal was to extend the reach of MIT OCW and the OpenCourseWare concept. By this, they meant not only to ensure that MIT materials reached the widest possible audience, but that OCW would become a practice adopted by many other schools around the world. They recognized that for MIT to do this would produce some benefit, but for OpenCourseWare to truly transform education, it would have to become a movement shared by a great many institutions.
  4. It’s hard for us to communicate just how big OCW is. 2,180 courses, means of course 2,180 syllabi and reading lists, but also notes from more than 18,000 lectures, 10,000 assignments, 1000 exams. About 40% of the exams include solutions, so you check your answers. And beyond the core teaching materials, we’ve included other kinds of enhanced materials, including video content in 117 courses—60 of which have their entire lectures recorded—complete text books, animations and simulations. The materials cover all 33 of MITs academic disciplines at both the undergraduate and graduate level.
