MIT OCW is an independent study school which means (through my experience) all classes last a lifetime. Eternal learned behavior is always encouraged, but not a necessity. Realistically, and trust me when I started going to MIT I realised am fully responsible for placing even “value” on my educational goals. I had a hard time personally focusing, and creating a way to “grade” or even prestige myself.
I realised recently, however, I am what I sought out to always be. An “MIT Hacker,” but moreso. My courses are built upon the society with which I have always understood to be elite, and am now growing to see as “just part of the entire world.” Truthfully, by definition, I can hack at even philisophical, code to watch the universe co-respond (but that is quantum stuff?) From being a phone phreak at a childhood age, and literally dissapearing into phone boxes in the U.K. To fixing the Amiga at school. It took me years to accomplish what I have.
However, regardless of any other progressive thought, I tell my friend in my head all the time: “Keep reminding me I go to MIT.” The challenge is in the elementary. It always has been.
Turning impossible into the possible is not just “magic” for a reason. Engineering itself, is not just science even socio-economic thinking comes into play.
Then I say to myself. I am the first person to hear these words – or say them – regarding the Open Course Ware program. That would be MIT thinking, as far as I have gathered.
However, never stop learning, and remain down to earth are probably the major keys.
Keys, lockpicking, Fin.
(I’m actually working on an experimental “Street School” based on this MIT program – more details to follow.)
*College. (Just to clear up some confusion about qualifications people don’t think I have?)
This is not a sixth form college – Eckerd is actually a private university. (In short.)
