Mr. Saylor created the Foundation because he had a very simple, very earnest, and very bold idea: education should be free. Since 2008, the Foundation's free education initiative (www.saylor.org) has focused on exploring the promise of the Internet to drive the cost of education to zero and expand access to quality open educational resources (OER). Toward this end, we have built over 280 free, self-paced, online courses, with many more on the way.
