MIT Open Courseware: Free Math Videos and Learning Materials

In the previous post I have shared to you Khan Academy, a website where you can learn mathematics by watching videos and answering questions. Most of the materials in Khan Academy in mathematics are in K-12.

In this post, I am going to introduce to you another website where you can watch video and download teaching and learning materials in undegraduate and graduate mathematics: the MIT Open Courseware. The MIT Open Courseware is a website by the Massachusettes Institute of Technology where they publish actual class videos from the said Institute. This means that unlike Khan Academy where you see an electronic whiteboard/blackboard, in MIT Courseware you see real professors teaching and interacting with students. Below is one of the videos from the said website. 

Aside from videos, they also contain audio course. The complete list of uploaded audio and video courses can be found here. The Youtube Channel can be found here.

According to Professor Dick K.P. Yue of the MIT School of Engineering, “The idea is simple: to publish all of our course materials online and make them widely available to everyone.”

Aside from mathematics, the courses in MIT Open Courseware also include science, technology, engineering, and social science.
