Presented at OpenEd 2010: Barcelona, Spain, November 2, 2010.
About Us…
MIT Office for Educational Innovation and
Technology
Dean for Undergraduate Education
Support innovation cycle
Novel uses of technology
to support teaching and
learning at MIT

Experiment
Incubate
Transition
Service
The Ground Rules
I’m with the MIT Office of Educational
Innovation and Technology
I don’t work for MIT OpenCourseWare
I *do* work with them
I don’t represent MIT OpenCourseWare or make
institutional commitments about OpenCourseWare
And to be clear, MIT is not charging for OCW.
“OpenCourseWare will remain free and open.”
This presentation will be a status report, and
opportunity for discussion

@bmuramatsu
Wouldn’t it be great if
MIT OCW…?
Early 2010
4
MIT OCW is a Publication
MIT OpenCourseWare is a free publication of
MIT course materials that reflects almost all the
undergraduate and graduate subjects taught at
MIT.
OCW is not an MIT education.
OCW does not grant degrees or certificates.
OCW does not provide access to MIT faculty.
Materials may not reflect entire content of the
course.

…but…we’re at MIT, certainly
we should be able to do more
with OpenCourseWare…
Wouldn’t it be great if
MIT OCW…?
6
…aha!
We were asking the wrong question!
7
What if WE experimented
with MIT OCW…?
Sure…OEIT can develop a custom
copy of MIT OCW

What are others doing to build upon MIT
OpenCourseWare?—OpenStudy
Allowing users to
connect with other
learners
 OpenStudy (9 courses)

Building Upon MIT
OpenCourseWare
These work well because MIT OpenCourseWare
remains a publication
“Magnify the value of [the] publication.”
These services are provided and supported
external to MIT OpenCourseWare
Very “light” integration (page/links or copy of content)

Launching Project Greenfield
April 2010
MIT Faculty have asked us about…
Interactivity
Tools and services
Innovative browse mechanisms
OEIT’s goals are to:
Support MIT faculty
Experiment, to show what’s possible (e.g., Web 2.0)
Prototype tools and services for published MIT OCW
… all with MIT OCW course materials
12
Project Greenfield
New Developments
MIT OpenCourseWare has been updating
elements
MIT is looking at how we approach E-Learning
and Other Educational Possibilities
3 MIT committees, one focusing on use of E-
Learning to enhance student learning experience
OpenCourseWare will likely play a big role—
expanding the use of OpenCourseWare with MIT
Students
13
What are new developments with
MIT OpenCourseWare?
Transitioned to a new publication platform
Allows more rapid updates and changes (May 2010)
“New” Mirror program (forthcoming, November 2010)
Improving interaction with video lectures
~15 courses updated to date
(September-October 2010)
Many of the most visited MIT OCW courses are
because of their video lectures, adding more courses
with video lectures
14
What are new developments with
MIT OpenCourseWare? (cont.)
Creating OCW Scholar
MIT extending core courses to provide more
complete learning materials
Organizing materials by concepts, adding
explanation videos and tutorials, adding self-check
quizzes
OCW Scholar Courses (December 2010)
15
@bmuramatsu
Ok, so what do WE
WANT to do?!?!
16
Projects Underway
Video and transcript integration
Concept browser
17
Integrated Video Player
18
SpokenMedia Player and MIT OCW
19
Concept Browser
OCW is working on providing concept-type
descriptions for some course materials
OCW Scholar
Concept level (1-10 concepts per course)
Includes learning objectives, some formative assessment
Created by faculty
OCW categorization project
Very high-level, course concepts
Hand applied
20
Concept Browser
What are we doing?
Enabling search over text AND video materials
(using SpokenMedia)

  2. This fits into MIT OpenCourseWare as a publication. The course materials are organized by concept, are more complete versions of existing OCW courses, and have additional OCW Scholar materials targeted at self-learners.
