Learning 2.0: Expanding movements of Online Learning

In the past few years, many of the world top universities are opening doors online for the public to access a variety of lectures and course materials: OpenCourseWare (OCW).
For example, MIT has over 1900 courses available online for free.

Regardless of locations, social classes, or economic situations, people with academic interests can access to top university's educations as long as they have internet connections. The universities may not benefit from giving courses all free online, and it may be hard to see who is benefiting from this, but this certainly brings tremendous opportunities to people in developing counties and those who have academic interests but are not fortunate enough to afford tuition.
