Introducing this course

Some years ago, some top universities started to put their courses online, for free.
When I was able for the first time to follow a course of Linear Algebra from MIT,
one of top tech universities, for free, I didn't believe it.
(if you are curious this course is still available here:Linear Algebra course from MIT
The choice of these universities changed the approach to study and was the begin of a disruptive change in knowledge, at every level.
It was 4th April, 2001 when MIT released MIT OpenCourseWare. Now not only software was open-source, but also the knowledge started to be "Open" and "free".
Today (January 2018) more than 800 universities offer free courses online.

A slow start

In 2001 another disruptive project made its first steps: Wikipedia.
Not only Wiki replaced old, expensive encyclopedia, but involved communities, all over the world, in every language.
So we passed from a centralized, paid form of knowledge to a shared community-generated work of knowledge.
Other projects took advantage from 2000 Internet boom, for example Project Gutenberg,
where you can find more than 40,000 literature books no more protected by copyright
.
