Go to M.I.T. for Free!

I was back at work today and one of the guys at the office turned me onto this bit of news:
By the end of this year, the contents of all 1,800 courses taught at one of the world's most prestigious universities will be available online to anyone in the world, anywhere in the world. Learners won't have to register for the classes, and everyone is accepted.

The cost? It's all free of charge.
Check it out.

That is beyond cool! Of course, now I want to blow off the afternoon of work to take a course in Mechanical Engineering that I've been curious about for years.
