Education: MIT opens a Campus on SecondLife… and OpenCourseWare

Chronicle of Higher Education published an article in the Sept 21 2007 issue, written by Andrea L. Foster entitled “Professor Avatar”, describing Massachusetts Institute of Technology‘s venture into Second Life. Watch the video: MIT Virtual Campus on Second Life.

Also visit the MIT Open Courseware page, where instructional materials from 1,700 courses taught at MIT have been made accessible online to anyone, including lecture and laboratory notes, videos, demonstrations and other educational materials.

Some of the MIT Open Courseware offerings are available in Spanish, Portuguese or simplified Chinese language translations.
