I'm not sure how many people know, but MIT uses CMS to manage its courses online. A few years ago, MIT announced a very forward thinking initiative - to make all its courseware available, free of charge, to the greater community. Today, the OpenCourseWare website is available to anyone. I'm proud to say that MIT uses CMS to manage all of its content. (Keep in mind that this implementation is highly customized.) For more information on how MIT uses CMS, take a look at the case study. Not too sound overly cheesy, but it's good to see how Microsoft's vision (to enable people and businesses throughout the world to realize their full potential) enabled MIT to realize its vision (to advance knowledge and education) through CMS 2002. I was able to play a very small role in this when I met with some of the decision makers with my colleague, Bob German, two years ago. Bob's a great guy who lives in the Boston-area and works at the Boston MTC.
