MIT Open Course Ware

Convenience today dictates much of our daily decisions and life plans; what makes this process more feasible is the internet and availability of information that can be accessed. Buckminster Fuller’s former prediction of using the web as a platform for learning has spread to larger and more prestigious institutions such as MIT, whereby people can choose to learn without having to pay for tuition or formally enroll into class. Whether or not one receives a formal education does not determine the influence and the success they may one day achieve. Providing education online helps those who are unable to afford education the ability to learn.
