OCW
Ing. Alba Lissette Peguero
Open Course Ware (OCW)
OpenCourseWare (OCW) is an
educational initiative developed by
the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology (MIT) to make the core
teaching materials for all MIT
graduate and undergraduate classes
available at no cost to Internet
users around the world.

Ing. Alba Lissette Peguero
Open Course Ware (OCW)
 OCW has been compared to the open
source software movement because course
materials on the OCW site will be "open and
freely available worldwide for non-
commercial purposes such as research and
education, providing an extraordinary
resource, free of charge, which others can
adapt to their own needs".
Ing. Alba Lissette Peguero
Open Course Ware (OCW)
President Vest has said that although
OCW appears counter-intuitive in a
market-driven world, it is particularly
appropriate for a research university
such as MIT where ideas move quickly
from the laboratory to the classroom
before there is even time to publish it
in textbooks.
Ing. Alba Lissette Peguero
OpenCourseWare (OCW)
OCW is not seen as a substitute for
revenue-generating distance
education (which requires interaction
between teacher and student) but
rather as a Web-based resource for
teachers and learners around the
globe.
Ing. Alba Lissette Peguero
According to the website of the OCW
Consortium, an OCW project:
 Is a free and open digital publication of high
quality educational materials, organized as
courses.
 Is available for use and adaptation under an
open license, such as certain Creative
Commons licenses.
 Does not typically provide certification or
access to faculty.
