Educators from around the world may upgrade their classes; students may enhance their coursework or pursue self-study; the general public may glimpse the depth and breadth of what leading universities are offering and benefit from reading lists and lectures.  OCW does not require any registration and is not a degree-granting or certificate-granting activity.
