The Technology Source website recently carried an interview with Phil Long "the senior strategist for the Academic Computing Enterprise at MIT" - about the Open Knowledge and Open Courseware initiatives at MIT.

The interview provides a good introduction to the two projects, the ultimate goal of which is to produce an open-source framework for learning systems coupled with freely available MIT course materials.

We've covered the OKI and OCI before in several articles, and you can also take a look at the OKI website and the OCI website.

The interview has also provoked an interesting discussion on Slashdot.com.
