This OCW topic is offered to you by www.LifeHappens.nl

 

Personal development always starts with good education and I would like to contribute to that by pointing to doors that wait for you to be opened. This Scoop.it page is the platform where you will find a rich collection of mental food for enrichment of your future. The rest of your life starts today...we energize it here !

 

Wikipedia says:

"OpenCourseWare (OCW) are course lessons created at universities and published gratis via the Internet. The OpenCourseWare movement started in 1999 when the University of Tübingen in Germany published videos of lectures online for its timms initiative. The OCW movement only took off, however, with the launch of MIT OpenCourseWare at MIT in October 2002."

 

Knowledge opens doors to interesting people and places, it builds global networks. Besides it has huge impact on essential choices that people make: think about life, work, family, communication, money, food, health, politics....everything ! Therefore I plea for a good continuous education for every young world citizen and ask you to spread this word and to help the younger ones among us. Sponsor their study, open your network pro-actively for them.

 

See my other topics also and share them with your friends and relatives.

Coursera and Udacity are NOT Open Courseware

Coursera and Udacity are NOT Open Courseware | Open Course Ware - free learning sources | Scoop.it

For a guy who says he doesn’t blog about MOOC’s much, 2 in a week might be a record. But there is something about this Exporting Education article that really bugs me. It is the way that the article implies that Coursera and Udacity are the same as Open Courseware and they clearly are not.

The Reg explores technology in a remote aboriginal community

The Reg explores technology in a remote aboriginal community | Open Course Ware - free learning sources | Scoop.it

The author William Gibson is reported to have said the future is already here, it's just not very evenly distributed.

I've recently seen plenty of truth in that utterance first hand, in the remote aboriginal community of Willowra, located about 300km north-west of Alice Springs on the land of the Warlpiri people. Willowra is home to the Wirliyatjarrayi Learning Centre, a new adult education facility that opened in April 2013 and brought with it ten PCs and Macs anyone in the community can use. They're the first public computers in a town that lacks mobile phone service and in which not every home has a phone.

What are MOOCs? MOOC stands for Massive Open Online Course. There's a bit of disagreement about what does and doesn't count as a MOOC, but at least in my mind the gold standards are Coursera, edX, the Khan Academy and MIT's venerable Open Courseware.

MIT OpenCourseWare introduces courses designed for independent learners

MIT OpenCourseWare introduces courses designed for independent learners | Open Course Ware - free learning sources | Scoop.it

For the first time, MIT OpenCourseWare is introducing courses designed to serve the needs of independent learners, visitors to the site who have no affiliation with academic institutions. These “OCW Scholar” courses address a need the MIT faculty never envisioned in 2000 when the idea for OCW was first conceived. At that time, the expectation was that other educators would use the syllabi, lecture notes, assignments and exams from MIT courses to design their own courses. But in this first decade of MIT OpenCourseWare, independent learners have emerged as the primary users of these materials.
