Director Letter

Dear Friend of OCW,

As the digital learning revolution continues to gain steam, we are working hard here at MIT OpenCourseWare to ensure our site remains a flagship of the movement. We now share materials from 2,200 MIT’s courses, all available without cost or registration, 24 hours a day and 365 days a year. We strive to be a ready resource that educators and learners can rely on to build new learning experiences or access just-in-time knowledge. And all of our materials can be downloaded to go where you go, so you know they'll always be there.

In addition to the core publication, we continue to roll out new innovations, including:

As of March 2014, our content has been downloaded from iTunesU 46 million times, viewed on YouTube more than 58 million times, and our Highlights for High School site has received more than 3.6 million visits.

Here are ways you can help keep OCW going and growing:

We’ll be launching our spring fundraising drive next month. Please consider a donation to OCW. We’d appreciate it!

Sincerely,
