Finding OpenCourseWare Material

OpenCourseWare Consortium

You can use the OpenCourseWare Consortium to find course materials from associated OpenCourseWare Colleges either by browsing each site individually or by searching across all the sites.

OpenCourseWare is defined as the "free and open digital publication of high quality educational materials, organized as courses". The OpenCourseWare Consortium is a collaboration of more than 200 higher education institutions and associated organizations from around the world creating a broad and deep body of open educational content using the shared model.

The OpenCourseWare Consortium seeks to advance education and empower people worldwide through opencourseware.

Japan, Spain and the USA are the leading contributors at present. Unfortunately, no Irish colleges involved as yet. I wonder which one will be the first?????
