Financial Backing for OpenCourseWare Consortium

March 3, 2010

Universities from around the world have pledged a total of $350,000 to the OpenCourseWare Consortium, which promotes the concept of colleges and universities making course materials available online and free. The popular effort was originally supported by foundation grants and some have worried about whether funds would be found to replace the expiring grants. Among the institutions pledging support are China Open Resources for Education, Delft University of Technology (the Netherlands), Japan OpenCourseWare Consortium, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Korea OpenCourseWare Consortium, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Open Universiteit (the Netherlands), Tecnológico de Monterrey (Mexico), Tufts University, Universia.net (Spain), Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (Spain), University of California at Irvine, University of Michigan, and University of the Western Cape (South Africa).
