Ten years ago, MIT helped launch a revolution in access to education when it announced it would place the core teaching materials from its entire curriculum online for anyone to use at no charge. Today, MIT OpenCourseWare shares materials from more than 2000 MIT courses and more than 250 universities around the world have joined MIT in publishing their own course materials openly. Sites like YouTube.edu, Khan Academy, OpenStudy.com have emerged to explore this new territory of informal online learning. In December, MIT announced a new online learning initiative, MITx, which will offer a portfolio of free courses through an online learning platform that features interactivity and assessment. In this presentation by Cecilia dOliveira, MIT OpenCourseWares Executive Director and Shigeru Miyagawa, Chair of MIT OpenCourseWares Faculty Advisory Committee and Head of MITs Foreign Languages and Literatures Department, well examine the how open educational resources are changing the educational landscape and meeting the global demands for open knowledge.
