MITx Opens Registration for its First Course

Earlier this week, MIT announced open registration for 6.002x – Circuits and Electronics, the pilot course in an online learning initiative called MITx. The initiative will allow students from all over the world to take selected MIT courses online…for free!

Student work in the courses will include viewing video tutorials, working from an etextbook, doing homework, labs, lectures and final exams. MIT hopes to make the online experience as close as possible to an actual MIT student’s experience.

This seems to be an awesome step forward in the world of open learning! We wish MITx the very best. Watch the video below to learn more about 6.002x:
