Open-Sourcing Of College Education

Take advantage of this if you can.
College education has gone open source: A number of top universities are placing their course materials online, free. No course credit is granted, but self learners can have access to all the same materials as those shelling out tens of thousands of dollars annually. That's great news for IT pros who are either unemployed or looking to acquire new skills and knowledge.

The movement includes prestigious universities MIT, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, University of California at Irvine and others.
