  • OpenCourseWare is part of Open Educational Resources, but while OER can be a single object, OpenCourseWare is a package of course materials, such as syllabi, tests, lecture notes, videos of lectures, recordings, reading lists, etc.
  • Institutions are the stewards of the collectionDoesn’t mean that anything can go upOCW can be used to advance particular objectives of an institution
  • We hope you’ll join us – thank you – flip through the next three slides rather quickly
