4 Unless otherwise specified, this work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 United States License The talk I was going to give was going to go something like… We’re experimenting with what we can do with the course materials published in MIT OpenCourseWare –for– MIT. Namely, let’s restructure the materials and import them into Moodle and build assessments around them … turning them into “real” Open CourseWare. And then, here’s a working example and what we learned… But… 4 With a Space

OCW is not an MIT education. OCW does not grant degrees or certificates. OCW does not provide access to MIT faculty. Materials may not reflect entire content of the course. 8 Reference: MIT OCW.

16 Unless otherwise specified, this work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 United States License MIT OpenCourseWare Serves a number of user groups: Faculty looking to teach a new subject, to see how other faculty (esp. MIT faculty) teach courses Students, at MIT and elsewhere, looking for resources to help them with a course Independent learners Is a publication Snapshot of courses taught by a particular faculty in a particular term Has whatever materials the faculty made available Typically has slides and lecture notes, perhaps assignments and exams. 16

17 Unless otherwise specified, this work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 United States License MIT OCW Scholar Goals Designed for independent learners who have few additional resources available to them. The courses are substantially more complete than typical OCW courses and include new custom- created content as well as materials repurposed from MIT classrooms. The materials are also arranged in logical sequences and include multimedia such as video and simulations. 17 Reference: MIT OCW. (2011). OCW Scholar. Retrieved May 11, 2011 from MIT OCW Website:

22 Unless otherwise specified, this work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 United States License Reusing Courses, or Teaching directly from OERs/OCWs Questions of scale, and… How much investment are you willing to undertake? For example, MIT OCW, consistent with their mission takes a large investment to achieve the breadth, instead of focusing on all the other things that would make “Open CourseWare” How much investment is necessary to create a “course” from the course materials? 22

25 Unless otherwise specified, this work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 United States License High Quality “Must be of the highest pedagogical and technical quality, integrating effective teaching strategies and interactive technologies.” Arguably, high quality already But, not designed for “teaching from…” Newly designed for “learning from…” Not especially interactive—but lots of resources out there 25

26 Unless otherwise specified, this work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 United States License Learning Objectives and Assessment “Should include clear student learning objectives and assessment strategies that monitor and review student success.” Snapshot of course, with materials provided by faculty Broadly speaking only engineering faculty have somewhat detailed learning objectives (because of accreditation) May or may not include assessments 26

28 Unless otherwise specified, this work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 United States License What might the end result look like (for MIT)? OCW Scholar + Collaboration + Assesments + Facilitators = Open CourseWare Might be an ongoing instantiation of a massively open online course Probably be able to import this Open CourseWare course into your LMS/VLE 28
