All MIT courses will soon be online

"MIT looks to reach an epic milestone soon: By the end of the year, its entire curriculum should be available online for free.

"Scholars - and amateur scholars - are coming in droves; this month, the site could receive 1.5 million visits.

"'It's exceeded our expectations,' said Anne Margulies, the official at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who heads up the online curriculum program called OpenCourseWare.

"MIT began putting courses online in 2001; more than 1,500 are already available, and all of its 1,800 courses should be posted by the end of this year."
