On the MIT OpenCourseWare platform, MIT makes teaching materials available for free use, including videos of lectures and seminars (many, however, under a CC-BY-NC-SA licence), slide sets, literature lists and exam papers. In total, materials from over 2,500 MIT courses are freely published online at MIT OpenCourseWare. The materials are available under various licences. The areas of MIT OpenCourseWare that are of particular interest to business researchers include:
- MIT OpenCourseware Online Textbooks lists all online textbooks from MIT OpenCourseWare. Some of these textbooks are openly licensed electronic versions of print books. Others are self-published online books or courseware thoroughly created to serve as an alternative to traditional textbooks.
- MIT OpenCourseware: Economics Courses lists economics courses.
- MIT OpenCourseware: Sloan School of Management Courses
- MIT OpenCourseware: Sloan School of Management: Audio/Video Lectures
