The Promise of OpenCourseWare
I have always been impressed with MIT's OpenCourseWare. I think it is a resource that allows a broad spectrum of individuals to attain a great self-directed education. Now, some MIT professors are moving this platform to the next level with the use of video. Please see the philosopher Irving Singer's courses on film and on love. In the film course, the video is nicely annotated, so that a viewer from off campus can–if she chooses– skip things like class introductions. Likewise, the video in the love course is clearly annotated, allowing a viewer to zero in on what is interesting to her.
