MIT OpenCourseWare Launches Interactive Transcripts and Video Search

3Play Media

MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW) today launched a beta site featuring our interactive transcripts and video search plugins. Video search has become increasingly important for MIT OCW, which has grown to over 2,100 online courses covering virtually all MIT undergraduate and graduate courses taught at MIT. Transcripts and captions are not new for MIT OCW, which has been diligently captioning videos to accommodate users with hearing disabilities. See the MIT OpenCourseWare case study.

Failure of Creative Commons Licenses

Tony Karrer

The one good thing that came out of it was that at least MIT recognized this failure and has additional information: MIT Interpretation of "Non-commercial" ": Non-commercial use means that users may not sell, profit from, or commercialize OCW materials or works derived from them. The guidelines below are intended to help users determine whether or not their use of OCW materials would be permitted by MIT under the "non-commercial" restriction.

Free lecture notes, exams, and videos from MIT. No registration required.

MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW) is a web-based publication of virtually all MIT course content. OCW is open and available to the world and is a permanent MIT activity. For example, check out 12.003 Atmosphere, Ocean and Climate Dynamics. This undergraduate class is designed to introduce students to the physics that govern the circulation of the ocean and atmosphere. The focus of the course is on the processes that control the climate of the planet.

11 Differences between a MOOC and an Online Course

ID Reflections

Related articles MOOCs: taxonomy of 8 types of MOOC A faculty perspective on OCW and MOOCs Reports from MOOC Research Hub I love this definition of MOOCs by Ignatia Inge deWaard in her e-book, MOOC Yourself: “A MOOC is a non-defined pedagogical format to organize learning /teaching/training on a specific topic in an informal, online, and collaborative way.” This captures the key essence of a MOOC highlighting the key differentiators between a MOOC and an online course.

Survey on Extreme or Informal Learning

One strand of this research is on the use of open educational resources, OCW, and popular learning portals like MIT OpenCourseWare and the MIT OpenCourseWare Highlights for High School. From my pal Curt Bonk at Indiana University: My research team and I from the Instructional Systems Technology Department at Indiana University are conducting a study titled, “Collecting Stories of Extreme or Informal Learning.”

Open Content in Workplace Learning?

The Learning Circuits

One of my Top 10 eLearning Predictions for 2010 was around Open Content for Workplace Learning: I’m not sure why this already hasn’t had a bigger impact, but workplace learning is going to start to catch up on the value of OCW and OER. Just visit the OER Commons and Open Courseware Consortium. Do a search on something like “instructional design”. Drill down a bit and there are some incredible resources. To me it's a bit surprising that there isn't more going on around this.

Reading the tea Leaves in my tabs: Our ecosystem is Commodified

Mark Oehlert

OCW : . I read my browser tabs like tea leaves I think. I look across the top row there and I try to discern what the tabs are telling me. Is there something bubbling up? What's gaining heat or buzz? I'm not saying my tabs are richer than others or more aromatic, its just one way I try to make sense of some of this stuff (I would also read actual tea leaves but they're so hard to find these days). .

Top 10 eLearning Predictions for 2010

Tony Karrer

Prediction #9 => Open Content I’m not sure why this already hasn’t had a bigger impact, but workplace learning is going to start to catch up on the value of OCW and OER. Before I start with any of my actual predictions, let me throw in an overall prediction that the year is going to start off slow for most people, but by the end of the year, we will all be thinking: “Wow, 2010 was a crazy year!”
