About OCW

MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW) makes the MIT Faculty’s course materials used in the teaching of almost all of MIT’s undergraduate and graduate subjects available on the Web, free of charge, to any person anywhere in the world. There are more than 2,300 courses available that span all 33 academic departments at MIT.



OCW is an expression of MIT’s commitment of advancing knowledge around the world. Through OCW, educators improve courses and curricula, making their schools more effective; students find additional resources to help them succeed; and independent learners enrich their lives and use the content to tackle some of our world’s most difficult challenges, including sustainable development, climate change, and cancer eradication.

To date, more than 200 million people from just about every country have accessed lecture notes, videos, problem sets, and other core MIT teaching materials—at no cost—through OCW for more than a decade.
