OCW Efforts in Higher Ed

Mark Jaycox has a new post providing an overview of recent OCW efforts in higher education. From the post:

The program, called “Bridge to Success” (B2S), will use high-quality open educational material, like MIT’s Open Courseware, to combine multimedia content with traditional pre-algebra concepts.

The Guardian has a new post on the need for attribution in open science. From the post:
