MIT was named the most visited college/university web site by 4 International Colleges & Universities, a higher education directory.
I have a few theories as to why we elbowed our way to the top of the list:
- OpenCourseWare: MIT courses for free on the web. What’s not to love about that?
- Blogs: You’re reading one now! We do have others from all corners of the Institute, so you might want to check out the MIT Blogroll.
- MIT News: Everything you want to know about technology, research and MIT. Get the inside scoop before it hits the pages of “Wired.”
- TechTV: Did you know that MIT has its own web video service? There’s really no way to adequately describe the eclectic mix of videos that are added by the MIT community each day. My personal favorites are the Doc Edgerton high-speed films. There’s also a general MIT video gateway.
- MIT’s home page: It changes every weekday.
- GAMBIT Game Lab: Games created by MIT students. I’m partial to Shadow Shoppe.
That’s not an inclusive list, of course. MIT is such a vibrant, creative place that if you can’t find something amazing on our website you’re really just not trying. That’s more of an opinion, though.
