OpenCourseWare started out as a pilot program by M.I.T. (Massachussets Institute of Technology) in 2002 with 32 courses. As of November 2011, over 2080 courses were available online. We in the engineering and construction community applaud M.I.T for remaining true to its commitment to advance science and technology knowledge worldwide. The OpenCourseWare site offers a wealth of knowledge at no cost. Similarly, we recognize the bold and innovative step taken by the Indian Institutes of Technology (www.iitb.ac.in/). By placing all of its engineering lectures free of charge in video format on YouTube, I.I.T. has become a pioneer in providing free access to world-class engineering knowledge to the entire world. These two institutions exemplify the very best in engineering and science innovation, and remain at the forefront of global technology education both academically and morally.
