TIME Magazine has named MIT OpenCourseWare (http://ocw.mit.edu) as one of its 50 best websites of 2010. Selected by the editors of TIME.com, MIT OpenCourseWare shares the honor with such notable and well-known web sites as LinkedIn, Etsy, The Daily Beast, The Guardian, Mint, Groupon, LiveMocha and TEDTalks.
"It's truly remarkable to see MIT OpenCourseWare listed beside these other well-known sites," says Professor Shigeru Miyagawa, chair of OCW's Faculty Advisory Committee. "It really speaks to the impact the site is having not only on the individuals who use it, but on the culture of the Web as a whole. It highlights the opportunities the Web provides for free and open sharing of knowledge. The MIT community should be very proud."
This recognition continues a string of recent honors for MIT OpenCourseWare. In 2009, OCW's Highlights for High School portal was named a Landmark Website for Teaching and Learning by the American Association of School Librarians.
