Mit’s OpenCourseWare (Ocw) is a free educational resource developed as a joint initiative by the Mellon Foundation and Mit. Started in September 2004, it offers about 2000 courses provided by Mit faculty with the goals of evolving in a web-learning platform and extending the impact of Mit “opencourseware” concept. Courses are classified in 36 thematic areas, relating to the Mit Departments. Learning materials are also classified by undegraduate and graduate levels. This website offers 60 courses concerning Political Science. Usually, webcourses are structured through an introduction/course description, syllabus, calendar, readings, assignments, exams and course materials, freely downloadable from the website. Sometimes simulations are also available, mainly within hard sciences area. All courses are available also into the iTunesU platform and as RSS feeds. A selection of video or audio lectures is also available. OpenCourseWare materials are usually licensed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology under a Creative Commons License. Recently MIT announced edX, a new learning collaboration with Harvard University.
