Open Course Movement

Not many posts recently, probably because I've been focused elsewhere with an overloaded schedule, multiple demands on my limited resources, etc. But, here are a few links on the Open Course Movement, including the Open Course Library project, that are worth saving..

First is the Good Magazine's Guide to Innovative Education. In that set of articles, they point to Academic Earth, which provides access to online courses, course materials, and degrees.

The Khan Academy provides short video lectures on a variety of topics, mostly focusing on math and sciences.

While we're at it, here's the Open Course Library Ning Site and the Open Course Library Wiki, the state of Washington's project to develop a set of courses for the world!
