An Ivy League Education for Free?!

Eric Barnes -

college admissions expert advice from eprep.comWell almost. Today’s Wall Street Journal reports on the momentum of elite universities offering full courses online for free to the public. MIT spearheaded the movement in 2003. The school’s “OpenCourseWare” provides syllabus and class notes for more than 1,500 courses online. Take a peak at this MIT physics lecture (requires Real Media Player). The article notes many colleges are following in MIT’s footsteps. We applaud Yale’s announcement to put seven undergraduate courses online in full video beginning this year.

The opportunity to learn has never been more exciting. As a high school student beginning the college search, we encourage you to explore their free online course offerings and begin to experience what it’s like in class.
