      Class Size One Billion: How Open Educational Resources Are
      Transforming Education

      Ten years ago, MIT helped launch a revolution in education when
      it announced it would place the core teaching materials from
      its entire curriculum online for anyone to use at no charge.
      Today, MIT OpenCourseWare shares materials from more than 2,000
      MIT courses (more than 100M visits and 14M course downloads).
      More than 250 universities around the world have joined MIT in
      openly publishing their own course materials. Sites like, Khan Academy,, and MITx have emerged
      to explore this new territory of informal online learning.

      The presentation will be made by Cecilia d’Oliveira ('77,
      SM'79), MIT OpenCourseWare’s Executive Director and Dick K.P.
      Yue, (SB'74, SM'76, ScD'80), a founding faculty member of MIT
      OpenCourseWare and currently Philip J. Solondz Professor of
      Engineering and Professor of Mechanical and Ocean Engineering
      ( It will examine
      the how open educational resources are changing the educational
      landscape and meeting the global demands for open knowledge.

      Presentation of 2012 MIT Inspirational Teacher Awards to local
      high school teachers

      Each year MIT asks current students to nominate High School
      teachers that went the extra mile, in many cases they have gone
      the extra 100 miles, to help their students reach their full
      potential. From these nominations MIT selects between 30 and 35
      to receive the MIT Inspirational Teacher Award. These awards
      are presented to the recipients by local MIT alumni clubs. This
      year two Northern California teachers were selected to receive
      this award, Mr. William Dunbar from Henry M. Gunn High School
      in Palo Alto and Mr. James Bigelow from Shasta High School in
      Redding. They join nine previous awardees from Northern
      California since the award was first given in 2007. Please help
      MITCNC honor these outstanding teachers.

      The Open CourseWare talk and MIT Inspirational Teacher Award
      presentation will be held at Google Headquarters on Thursday
      June 21st from 6:00 to 9:00 PM.
