Open-Access Courses: How They Compare - The Digital Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Dominic |

A comparison of four open-access course providers (Berkely, MIT, P2PU, Saylor and U. of Wisconsin at Madison) in terms of five criteria: whether they include videotaped lectures, contact with professor, interaction with other students, option to take quizzes/ tests, and provision of homework assignments. It would be interesting to add more open access initiatives to the list, and to include accreditation for self-study as a criterion.
