  • View the OpenCourseWare lecture matching your topic for that day.
  • Play, pause, rewind, and repeat the lectures as many times as you want till you feel that you have understood the concept.
  • Note down your queries from the video and ask your lecturer in the next class.

These courses are not a distance-learning, credit-bearing, or degree-granting initiative. Hence there are no prerequisites to use these videos and course materials.

You will find courses that were taught ten years ago but are just as relevant today, such as Classical Mechanics. But you will also find courses taught recently on timely issues like repairing the Hubble telescope.
