Ever wish you could continue your education but have limited time and of course, always, limited resources (in the way of cash!) Well here might be somewhat of a solution. Though you will not get a degree of any kind, you can complete select courses from MIT for absolutely nothing. Surprised

The MIT OpenCourseWare program had completely escaped my attention.

Thanks for posting it! Very Happy

I am wondering though, could you challenge these free courses for credit? Think
