OpenLearn and Online School

Check out OpenLearn, a new free service from UK’s Open University. You can get access to tons of learning materials online. From environmental business to nutrition to crime, they have a tight layout and some interesting stuff. Totally worth a look and a bookmark as they plan on putting up even more.

Other US schools have been jumping on this, too. MIT comes to mind. Stanford as iTunes U. I’m sure Yale has something like this, I just can’t find it.

I’d be interested in posting the best of what you guys find on these sites and others online. Maybe we can construct a pretty awesome resource for extracurricular learning together, you know? I’m a big fan of onlineness…

    I wish I was at a school whose professors wanted their teaching materials published for all to admire.Nope, just chalk and pages of notes that have been used for the past 10 years.

    Hence the deliberate use of the phrase.. “last I heard”. At the time, iTunes U was on the list of “podcasting platforms” — which was why I was told to make the iTunse U authentication script to begin with — and I was told it was not being used this semester because Apple failed to get the appropriate content management tools finished in time and that it would be revisited once they did.Obviously I’m out of the podcasting loop these days and had not heard of these recent-like developments.

    Wesleyan is definitely not institutionally ready for ITunes U. Anything you heard about us waiting for Apple on this is just wrong.Wes is running a pilot program for podcasting, but this is an issue which will ultimately be decided by the Faculty.

    There’s actually a Wesleyan iTunes U out there, just currently restricted to certain users because it’s not yet ready for showtime.Last I heard the hold up was from Apple because some management tools for iTunes U had not been built in time for this semester. The ability to restrict content was considered *very* important, and it was lacking at the time, so… yeah, kinda waiting on Apple before it’s revisited.
