MIT to launch online-only, graded courses for free - Metro - The Boston Globe

The only prerequisites: time, attention, and an Internet connection

The university announced today a plan to launch “MITx,’’ a set of specially designed Web-only classes that anyone can take for free. Those who earn passing marks may pay the school a small fee for an MITx certificate. Though it will not be an MIT diploma, it could help on a résumé, allowing students to prove mastery of individual subjects without earning full degrees.
