what is opencourseware

What is OpenCourseWare?

An Opencourseware (OCW) is a free and open educational resource for faculty, students, and self-learners throughout the world.

OCW is not a distance-learning initiative: there are no degrees granted, no student/faculty interactions and no transcripts.

OCW is a collection of high-quality learning materials presented in the form of courses.

OCW materials are there for the taking and for transformation.

Universities working together to advance education and

empower people worldwide through opencourseware.
