More and more students now go online to find quality learning materials. The Open Education Resources (OER) movement has sparked the formation of numerous groups worldwide, including the OpenCourseWare (OCW) Consortium spearheaded by MIT. The OER movement opens new venues for self-learners and non-traditional students to access free, high-quality learning materials, particularly in gatekeeper courses such as introductory chemistry, physics, math, and biology. Understanding what OCW means to students and to universities is paramount to understanding the future of higher education.

Discussion Topics: 
  • Options for involvement in OpenCourseWare
  • Legal considerations that must be resolved
  • Various distribution channels available
  • Quality assessment of open learning resources and guiding students to use them wisely
