Wang Long  
MIT OCW has succeeded in promoting the opening and sharing of global educational resources six years after its implementation. It is a new initiative to spread knowledge in the networked age.Based on case study and literature review, this article focuses on five features of MIT OCW in view of Diffusion of Innovation Theory, S-shaped curve and the developmental stages of the MIT OCW project. It critiques the project's S-shaped curve and sums up its innovative measures for increasing accessibility and applicability. It also attempts to identify the underlying causes of the project's rapid development. MIT OCW is a successful example of putting innovation in ideas, in products and in methods into practice. As a new mode of knowledge sharing, MIT OCW embodies new features of spreading new knowledge in the networked age and becomes an option for strategic renovation both in conventional higher education and in distance education.
