MIT's OpenCourseWare took off as could not have een expected. Now 250 univeristies are part of OCWC, including many leading universities.

No idea emerges without some precident. MIT drew inspiration from the open source etc. But actually draws on more ancient tradition of the academy: simultaneous pursuit of the same aims. Potent force for the common good. Prepare our students to draw on the value and so invent a better future for all.
