  • OpenCourseWares are open access collections of educational materials used in formal courses. In 2001, MIT launched the OpenCourseWare Initiative (http://ocw.mit.edu/) - a program that makes educational materials for 2,000 MIT courses available on the Web, available to anyone anywhere free of charge. In launching and delivering on this visionary initiative, MIT has set the stage to enable universities all over the world to extend the reach and opportunities afforded by teaching and learning to the world at large. There are now over 50 universities worldwide offering OpenCourseWares. There are OpenCourseWare projects at Johns Hopkins University, Utah State University, and schools in Japan, China, and the Netherlands. There is growing momentum among higher education institutions to participate in this “open” movement. Through opencourseware projects, universities can share and contribute their knowledge and expertise in an open and easily accessible manner.
  • Then what’s the point? Open access to educational materials. It’s so cheap to distribute… we have an obligation Encouraging reuse
  • I will focus primarily on Utah State University’s OpenCourseWare because that is where I have the most experience.
  • The case for derivative works… building on the work of others, allowing the same for others.
  • Although we could not obtain copyright permissions for all of the readings, we were able to link to some of the plays for the course on Project Gutenberg, a collection of public domain books available online.
  • Bring a diverse, worldwide group together to reuse your materials.
  • Show students what’s in your course before they enroll. Recruit students by opening access to your course materials. Then allow students to revisit materials after the course is over.
  • Increase educational opportunity for those who can’t be in the classroom
  • Faculty: the stars of the show. Without them, the movement has no content, no heart. The Open: people who understand open source, openness and how it benefits recipients AND contributors. These people can be passionate about openness and can be great allies in building OCW at your institution. Administration: Support from admin is important. Find someone(s) who will help open doors and overcome administrative obstacles. Online Learning Team: instructional & graphic designers, people with the technical skills to set up the server. A good place to start is the current online learning team. They often have all of these people in place.
  • This image describes a loose pattern for how OCW gets started in an institution. This is an iterative process, but it will generally follow a flow like this.
