Hidustan Times recently published this news in December 2011 that MIT to offer free online diploma

The world-renowned university MIT is willing to give you a new kind of credential to prove it. Not a full-fledged diploma that's still possibility only for the 10,000 students admitted to its Cambridge, Massachusetts, ampus. It will offer credentials under the name “MITx“ to students who complete the online version of certain courses, starting with a pilot program this spring.

The idea came from elite universities like Stanford, Yale and Carnegie-Mellon are experimenting with how to use the Internet to impart their teaching to a global audience through the instructions on platforms like You Tube, Apple's i Tunes U and others developed by universities themselves.

MIT's Open Course Ware programme is already popular. Course materials such as syllabi, tests and lecture videos from over 2,000 MIT classes are available free online. Since the launch of this programme, a decade ago, over 100 million people have been benefited.

Free online MITx to start in 2012

Massachusetts Institute of Technology's new MITx online learning system will give you a chance to access a variety of course materials for free. The institution will also make the MITx platform available to other schools for publishing their own content, and will even offer assessments with the option of earning a certificate of completion.
Online-only non-MIT learners will not have the same level of access as MIT students, who will also use the platform to access their own course material, but won't have the option of replacing an on-campus experience with exclusively online classes. MITx is scheduled to go live next spring. You can get a head start on that fictional MIT degree by checking out OpenCourseWare, which has been serving up similar content.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology is known for its free courseware available to net users across the world for the last 10 years. Now it is taking a step forward in online learning. It has launched an online learning initiative called MITx, which will allow students to earn a credential. With nearly 2100 free online courses, MIT's OpenCourseWare has been used by more than 100 million people.

As with OCW, the teaching materials on MITx will be available to anyone in the world for free, and in general, there will not be any admission process. However, credentials will be granted only to those students who earn them by demonstrating mastery of the material of subject course.

IITs will join MIT OpenCourseWare community

The Indian Institutes of Technology have now agreed to the proposal of Massachusetts Institute of Technology to join their OpenCourseWare community. MIT students can now access classroom content of the IITs online.

Lectures of IIT classrooms will now be available on Apple's multi-media platform iTunes very soon. YouTube is already having a separate channel for IIT open ware courses, which had 63.64 lakh viewers during December 2011.

When Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) had invited the IITs to join its OpenCourseWare community in the year 2007. But at that IITs felt that their initiatives were too young to join the world of OpenCourseWare learning. But after four years, the IITs feel that they have caught up with the other members of the open source community, who had started making their course material public a long time ago.

Several other universities like Yale, Peking, Harvard Law School, Notre Dame, Tufts, UC Irvine and Utah State have already allowed MIT to host links to their OpenCourseWare. The Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore, is already a member of MIT's OpenCourseWare.

The IITs on their own initiative on similar lines of MIT launched the National Programme for Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL) in which seven of the old IITs and the Indian Institute of Science had joined together. The NPTEL has over a thousand courses in technology and the humanities. The NPTEL encompasses all topics in every course, from their introduction to the end, which allow the students to sit at home and study the complete course. Nearly 500 Indian engineering colleges have already been given the NPTEL content, and students can access it through their college intranet.
