Vest›April 2001 — MIT OCW announced in The New York Times3A New Model for Open SharingVision — Institutional decision-making“OpenCourseWare looks counterintuitive in a market-driven world. But it really is consistent with what I believe is the best about MIT. It is innovative. It expresses our belief in the way education can be advanced — by constantly widening access to information and by inspiring others to participate.”— Charles M. Vest,President Emeritus of MIT4A New Model for Open SharingVision — Vision to reality›June 2001 — Funding partnership with the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation›September 2002 — MIT OCW pilot site- 50 courses›September 2003 — MIT OCW officially launches 500 courses›April 2005 — 1,100 courses5A New Model for Open SharingMIT OpenCourseWare IS NOT:MIT OpenCourseWare IS:Vision — What is MIT OCW?›An MIT education›Intended to represent the interactive classroom environment›Degree granting›A Web-based publication of virtually all MIT course content›Open and available to the world›A permanent MIT activity6A New Model for Open SharingVision — Why is MIT doing this?›Furthers MIT’s fundamental mission ›Embraces faculty values Teaching
