beachdog writes: From the Massachusetts Institute of Technology: "MITx will offer a portfolio of MIT courses for free to a virtual community of learners around the world. It will also enhance the educational experience of its on-campus students, offering them online tools that supplement and enrich their classroom and laboratory experiences.

The first MITx course, 6.002x (Circuits and Electronics), will be launched in an experimental prototype form. Watch this space for further upcoming courses, which will become available in Fall 2012."

For the past few years, MIT has been putting materials from it's college courses on the Internet and copyable with few limits. It looks like MIT is now taking a further step of enabling students to earn a certificate of course completion.
