MIT Open Course Ware

If you've ever wondered what it would be like to go to MIT, well, here's your chance. MIT is now offering tons of its lectures, notes, exams, and videos online for free, so that you can learn by inclination without paying, which is good, because I didn't need to pay to flunk out of that school. I can just find out how stupid I am for free. Yay.

Go to the About page, and you'll see this warning, however:

MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW) is a web-based publication of virtually all MIT course content. OCW is open and available to the world and is a permanent MIT activity.

What is MIT OpenCourseWare?
MIT OpenCourseWare is a free publication of MIT course materials that reflects almost all the undergraduate and graduate subjects taught at MIT.

OCW is not an MIT education.
OCW does not grant degrees or certificates.
OCW does not provide access to MIT faculty.
Materials may not reflect entire content of the course.

What they're basically telling you is, DON'T SEND IN A RESUME SAYING YOU ATTENDED MIT, BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T, IDIOT! At least they're very, very astutely clear about it.
