MIT’s OpenCourseWare Consortium is a community of over 250 universities and associated organizations worldwide committed to advancing OpenCourseWare sharing and its impact on global educational opportunity. The mission of the OpenCourseWare Consortium is to advance formal and informal learning through the worldwide sharing and use of free, open, high-quality education materials organized as courses. Collectively, OCW Consortium members have published materials from more than 13,000 courses in 20 languages, available through the Consortium’s web site.

IITs also run a similar initiative called NPTEL (National Programme for Technology Enhanced Learning) and have made courses from IITs and IISC online via the youtube channel, NPTEL.
