OCW in the US — MIT internal metrics

  • 71% of students

  • 59% of faculty

  • 41% of alumni

  • 35% of freshmen who were aware of the site before deciding to come to MIT say it was a significant influence

“OCW was one of the main reasons why I decided to come here and not another university--it provided a good understanding of what I was going to get ... that's the reason why I ended [up] here, and not in Stanford or Columbia.” (MIT Graduate Student)

“When I have trouble understanding the material for a course or test, OCW is the best place to find added resources.

(MIT Undergraduate Student)
