Harvard & MIT Launch Free Online Classes

Getting an education from two of the most pre-eminent universities in the world will soon be as easy going online.

At least, that’s the unified goal of Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), which on Wednesday announced they were teaming-up to offer a new online education program, dubbed “edX.”

The inaugural class begins in the fall of this year, and the initial courses are expected to be announced in the summer.

GOOD.  Just telling people that I went to Berkeley was getting old.

On a serious note, this is exactly where the future of education SHOULD be going.  I’m actually really excited to see what Harvard offers (I’m guessing MIT may be too technical for me).  There is something very special about being able to learn from some of the brightest people.
