    • MIT started in 2001 with two main objectives:
      • “ Provide free, searchable, access to MIT's course materials for educators, students, and self-learners around the world.“
      • “ Create an efficient, standards-based model that other institutions may emulate to openly share and publish their own course materials."
  • 6. What is OCW?
    • An OpenCourseWare is a free and open digital publication of high quality educational materials , organized as courses for faculty, students, and self-learners throughout the world.
    • An ocw is a collection of high-quality learning materials presented in the form of courses
    • An ocw is not a distance-learning initiative: there are no degrees granted and in most cases no student/faculty interactions
    • OCW materials are there for the taking and for transformation .
