Think you could study at MIT?

Mass. Institute of Technology has launched MIT OpenCourseWare which is a initiative to post content from all their courses online. From what I saw some courses have only a syllabus and bibliography posted while others have lecture notes in .pdf form and some have audio and video of lectures.

Having taught a college course I think looking at the texts and assignments from MIT is very interesting. Apparently one of their prime objectives is to allow people to study on their own (although they offer no credit or faculty support). It also seems like a potential tool to recruit students - by showing off the courses that you offer. Check it out.
