Referred to as OpenCourseWare (OCW) and started by MIT in 2001, these are courses whose content is published online, free to anyone with a thirst for knowledge. There is no registration or enrollment because the courses don't count toward any degrees or certificates, and the materials may not reflect the entire content of the courses.

Broad subject areas include art, business, computers & engineering, health & medicine, and mathematics.
