MIT LINC (Learning International Networks Consortium) is a consortium of educators from around the world who are interested in using distance and e-Learning technologies to help their respective countries increase access to quality university education for a larger percentage of the population. It is an international community of individuals and organizations that focuses on higher education in emerging countries and the role that technology can play in expanding educational reach.

The Learning International Networks Consortium (LINC) is an MIT-managed international initiative that began in 2001 and is operated by a growing team of MIT faculty, student and staff volunteers. LINC’s premise is simple and compelling: With today’s computer and telecommunications technologies, every young person can have a quality education regardless of his or her place of birth or wealth of parents. Until recently, the assets of a country lay buried underground, such as oil, gas, gold, silver and diamonds. Today, the key assets of a country lie ‘buried between the ears of its citizens!’ Educating the mind – that is the key to a better tomorrow for all.
