Chronicle Story on OpenCourseWare

A story in this week’s Chronicle of Higher Education (paid registration required, ironically enough) discusses the growing momentum behind the OpenCourseWare movement, and the meeting at MIT two weeks ago. As described in the article, at this meeting several universities at varying levels of progress into their OCWs met to talk about best practices, building additional momentum behind the movement, etc. Attendees included reps from MIT, Utah State University, Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, Tufts, Michigan, the Universia consortium, the China Open Resources for Education consortium, and a new consortium of Japanese schools. Some other “name” schools who are dipping their toes in the pool were there are well. It’s nice to see the mainstream press following what we’re doing, even if they don’t completely “get it” yet.
