Despite Rumors, MIT OpenCourseWare Insists ‘No Paywall’ – NYTimes.com

A followup from last week.  Apparently MIT will keep their OpenCourseWare free after all.  I am sure they got a lot of heat about this proposal even though they said it wasn’t an option.

    • With both private and public schools facing budget issues in tough economic times, it’s no surprise perhaps to hear a university employee say that the school is re-evaluating distance learning opportunities. But when an MIT employee made a statement to that effect at the OECD’s Institutional Management in Higher Education earlier last month, some media outlets erroneously reported it as an indication that MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW) was considering implementing a paywall.

    • "That is simply not under consideration," says Steve Carson, MIT OpenCourseWare’s External Relations Director.
