Aligarh Muslim University
Adnan Esmail, a mechanical engineering graduate student, has combined MIT’s OpenCourseWare initiative with CSAIL’s support to bring the institute’s educational resources to the Indian subcontinent. The OCW Outreach initiative consists of mirror sites which make the course information available to those in nations with poor bandwidth infrastructure.
The program has been realized in partnership with Aligarh University in Aligarh, India. It runs on hard drives that have been generously donated by Maxtor for OCW proliferation. This expansion of access will give talented students without the technological resources they need a chance to reach their full educational potential.
