This year MIT OpenCourseWare is celebrating its tenth anniversary of providing open access to more than 2,000 courses with course materials including lecture notes, problem sets, syllabuses, exams, simulations, and the video lectures.

The decision by the MIT faculty in 2001 to allow anyone to use their course content was

a groundbreaking move, one that has opened education profoundly. Since then, an estimated 100 million individuals have accessed MIT’s resources. And OCW has set an ambitious agenda for the program's next decade: to reach one billion minds.

Over the next ten years, MIT OpenCourseWare is planning a series of initiatives designed to magnify the impact of the program. Join us Thursday, August 25 at 2 p.m. ET (18:00 UTC) on opensource.com as we hear Cecilia d’Oliveira, executive director of OpenCourseWare at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, talk about the program and its future plans.

Looking forward to MIT OCW's Cecilia d'Oliveira live webcast on Monday, August 25 at 2pm Eastern Time.

As a contribution to the Open Course Ware movement, here's World University and School -
http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/World_University - which is like Wikipedia with MIT OCW. WUaS is planning to accredit and offer free degrees (Bachelors, Ph.D., Law and Medicine), with the first matriculating (Bachelors) class in 2014.
