It's great to see a crowdfunding (crowdsource funding) site for Education! Have a look and see if your education or training activities might benefit from such funding or at least the exposure to this community online.

"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.
