MIT Open CourseWare Material Added to NCLOR


This series is a collection of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology OpenCourseWare course materials that reflect undergraduate and graduate subjects taught at MIT. The resources can be complete courses, with audio/ video lectures, assessments and exams, lecture notes or supplemental resources such as lab manuals.  Currently, there are six complete MIT courses uploaded to the NCLOR. Those courses are: Introduction to Biology, Principles of Chemical Science, Physics I: Classical Mechanics, Single Variable Calculus, Introduction to Computer Science and Programming and Introduction to Psychology. More courses will be added later. Also available in the MIT resource series is the MIT Digital Lab Techniques Manual. This manual is a collection of videos that show how to complete various procedures in a laboratory environment.

To review the MIT items log into the NCLOR (www.explorethelor.org) or log into your institution’s LMS and click on Browse by Resource Series and then MIT OpenCourseWare. You can sort by course or manually.
