  • As part of the Year of the Volunteer 05 there is some great info on sports volunteering and opportunities to get involved at www.sportmonth.org or for more general info and volunteering opoportunities this year try www.yearofthevolunteer.org.
    They might not save you money directly but without volunteers we'd all be paying a lot more.

    Study over 900 online courses at MIT

    http://ocw.mit.edu/index.html

    MIT OCW is a large-scale, Web-based electronic publishing initiative funded jointly by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and MIT.

    MIT OCW's goals are to:

    * Provide free, searchable, access to MIT's course materials for educators, students, and self-learners around the world.
    * Extend the reach and impact of MIT OCW and the "opencourseware" concept.

    MIT OCW would not be possible without the support and generosity of the MIT faculty who choose to share their research, pedagogy, and knowledge to benefit others. We expect MIT OCW to reach a steady - though never static - state by 2008. Between now and then, we will publish the materials from virtually all of MIT's undergraduate and graduate courses.

    We will be continually evaluating the Access, Use, and Impact of MIT OCW over the course of the next five years. With 900 courses published as of September 2004, we are still in a learning stage of this MIT initiative and we will benefit enormously from your feedback, as we strive to make MIT OCW as rich and useful as possible for our users.
