Overview

The idea is to start an Open Courseware initiative for Harvard Extension school. Particularly, I would like to target the course videos for distance education courses as ideal material that could be shared with minimal effort.

Ideas for how to start

  • Contact MIT, Harvard Medical School Open Courseware project leaders for advice (NOT DONE YET)
  • Determine whose approval we need (NOT DONE YET)
  • Locate sources for funding (NOT DONE YET)

Technical

There are obviously a number of technical aspects to this. The software platform needs to be integrated into professors' existing practices as well as possible. Hosting, editing, file formats, etc all need to be dealt with.
