MIT OpenCourseware Unofficial

MIT OpenCourseware UnofficialAs of September 2016 this channel was not functioning even though it is still listed in the Roku Channel Store.

Quick Look: This channel offers videos of lectures from MIT courses in several disciplines (see below). I sampled several videos from several courses. In my sampling, all videos were made with single-camera recording, following the instructor in the front of the room. These are dry lectures, and the experience is one of sitting in a classroom or large lecture hall. Don't expect any helpful graphics or interesting videos. This isn't The Learning Channel or Discovery - this is MIT, and all you get is a professor in front of a white board.

The classes offered are in the following disciplines:

  • Architecture
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Computer Science
  • History
  • Law
  • Media
  • Philosophy
  • Physics
  • Mathematics
  • Urban Studies

Some videos are hours long and the video quality is poor with lots of pixilation. I sampled several videos and streaming quality was good, with fast loading and no pauses to rebuffer.
