Human potential is universal; opportunity is not. MIT OpenCourseWare began with the vision that the teaching tools of the world’s top learning institutions should be freely available to all humanity: to study, to share, to build upon.
In our first 10 years, MIT has been delivering on that vision. We’ve reached 100 million individuals to date, people with the ideas, talents and motivation to have enormous impact on their communities, given the opportunity to do so.
Very true. How do you help educate people to find opportunities? How do you make it so easy for them to find what they want, learn what they want, when they want?
An audacious plan like this needs to be encouraged and supported. We just to figure out how we do our bit to Create Communities of Open Learning.
