  • The OpenCourseWare (OCW) movement has achieved “lift off.” The movement began in 2000 when the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), supported by funding from organizations including the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, decided to offer undergraduate- and graduate-level MIT courses and materials on a free and easily accessible Web site under Creative Commons licenses. This startling decision, coinciding with the e-learning “gold rush” money-making mentality that animated so many businesses and universities at the time, gained media attention and admiration from educators and self-learners around the world. MIT’s example spawned the OpenCourseWare Consortium (OCWC) which currently has over 200 members offering about 9000 courses.
