The , a group of donors who strongly support MIT OpenCourseWare’s mission, have issued this challenge because they believe the thousands of people who use OCW’s site every day and can afford to donate, should be active members of our community of supporters.
MIT’s foray into on-line learning started with MIT Open Coursework in 2001, a platform for professors to upload content and supplemental material. It gave rise to an MIT culture of blending classroom and on-line learning. From there, MIT started MITx, an open platform that allowed outsiders to access MIT on-line courses. Its first course offering, Circuits, attracted 120,000 registered students, a number larger than the entire MIT alumni base. This self-paced learning platform features video-content, embedded quizzes, immediate feedback, student-ranked questions and answers and on-line laboratories.
