  23. 5. It teaches students that sharing is key

  24. 6. It helps us become digital scholars

  25. Using open content

  26. Can’t use because: • Students would think that there is no value addition from faculty ? • Faculty would feel more confident if content/PPT created by self. • Students expect original contribution from faculty. • Content to be customized/tuned for “My” teaching style, environment, curriculum

  27. How to use: • Use small bits / pieces from open content • Use OCW content as Additional Ref. • Give reference to open content as pre-study material to students before the class lecture. • Share OCW sites to other faculty members.
