Unlocking Knowledge, Empowering Minds is the recent motto on MIT’s OCW website.
Over the last several years multiple institutions have posted online their courses with lecture notes, exams, and videos for free.
Not having financial resources to attend college is not a reason to not excel. With the advent of the Internet, the knowledge is just a click away, giving everyone the opportunity to attend renowned higher education institutions virtually.

Topics range from basic Communication Networks to Internet Protocols to Broadband and Optical Networks as well as Wireless and experimental networking.
