MIT OpenCourseWare

I've posted before on these but it cant be said often enough that MIT deserve huge credit for developing this initiative - an absolute treasure trove. Every university in the world should look to ways that people outside the institution can benefit to some extent from what goes on inside. I know there are arguments to the contrary (why should people who havent paid to attend get benefits and so on) but I dont find any of the arguments very convincing particularly in light of the mandate of most universities to benefit the wider society and promote the dissemination of knowledge.
