Can I Use MIT's Open Courseware to Homeschool College?

Has anyone homeschooled college using things such as MIT's Open Courseware, and would completing courses through this be an acceptable path?
~Stephanie on Facebook


To get college credit while you homeschool ("homeschooling college") requires credits to be accredited by some organization (like CLEP) or some college (like Thomas Edison.) While MIT's Open Courseware classes are extremely cool, they aren't accredited. You would probably need to find a test to measure knowledge gained from the Open Courseware and then a college to grant credit based on that test. Sounds like a job for superman - I mean CollegePlus!
