Top 100 Open Courseware Projects | OEDb | Open Research & Learning | Scoop.it

"Open courseware projects (OCWs) provide numerous opportunites for students or lifelong learners to explore new topics or to learn more about things they're already interested in. While massive open online courses (MOOCs) are making headlines (we've included a few here for you to try out), open courseware projects are available in a wide range of formats, brining together everything from lecture notes to videos to reading material. Here, we've highlighted some of the best open courseware resources in each of these subjects, offering amazing free resources for learning that come from leading professors, top-tier universities, and experts all over the world. If you don't find what you're looking for in these projects, make sure to check out our archive of free course materials" -from source: http://oedb.org

ghbrett's insight:

The Open Education Database is a great resource for life long learners who want to find educational materials for various disciplines. This article narrows the growing field of content and courseware providers to the Top 100 Open Courseware Projects.  Well worth a look at -- both the article and the web site itself.

"This paper seeks to provide a historical overview of developments in the world of open education and a look at the key challenges that it faces. It considers how technology has altered the way in which information is obtained and shared and the consequences this has for the organization of education, from online learning to the flipped classroom. It also shows how roles and the balance of power between producers and consumers of content have become blurred leading to new possibilities for learning in different ways such as MOOCs, from peers and networks, etc. The new learning opportunities on offer can reach new groups of learners, a challenge that universities cannot ignore.‬‬‬‬" from source: http://www.je-lks.org/
