MIT Open Course Ware (OCW) is a free and open educational resource for faculty, students, and architects around the world. OCW supports MIT’s mission to advance knowledge and education in the 21st century. OCW is a large-scale, web-based electronic publishing initiative. It’s goals are to: provide free, searchable, access to MIT’s course materials and to create an efficient, standards-based model that other institutions may emulate to openly share and publish their own course materials.
There are currently 20 courses available from the School of Architecture and Planning. These include syllabus, bibliographies, calendars, and in some cases , lecture notes. See http://ocw.mit.edu/OcwWeb/Architecture/
