Open Courses (often called OpenCourseWare, OCW) are free and open digital publications of high quality college and university-level educational materials.  These materials are organized as courses, and often include course planning materials and evaluation tools as well as thematic content. Open Courses are free and openly licensed, accessible to anyone, anytime via the Internet.
