Notre Dame OpenCourseWare was named as the recipient of the Landmark Award for OpenCourseWare Excellence. The University of Notre Dame was one of the founding members of the OpenCourseWare Consortium and launched their OCW site in 2006. The site currently has more than 50 courses in 24 subject areas, and in 2012 the site received visits from 300,000 individuals in 211 countries and territories around the world.

The award recognizes an outstanding institutional or affiliate site that is exemplary in the breadth, depth, and creativity of its presentation of educational content. Kudos to our colleague Cathy Schulz for this honor! The video below takes a brief look at one of the courses.

OCW is a free and open digital publication of educational materials for colleges and universities. Materials are organized as courses, and often include planning materials and evaluation tools as well as thematic content.  OCW sites are accessible to anyone, anytime via the internet.

An OCW site is not a MOOC. Course are not offered, and professors do not interact with site visitors.

I’ll admit that I am a little biased. I have a course on the site.
