*Alice Cox and Curt Newton from MIT's OpenCourseWare have expressed an interest in OpenWetWare. Alice attended the OWW community development meeting on 2/21/2006 and Sri and I will be attending an OpenCourseWare meeting in March to share ideas and learn more about each project.  If you're interested in this topic, let me know.  Regardless, we'll report back to the steering committee. --[[User:Rshetty|RS]]

*Malcolm's paper [[Image:Macintosh HD-Users-nkuldell-Desktop-1103.pdf]] offers a nice model for collective educational efforts. I'm not sure there are direct applications to OWW but it's worth keeping Science's educational forum, and a powerful force like Malcolm in mind. I suspect he'd be keeen on seeing the good word/work of OWW spread and would have some great ideas to add if we tapped him.

Also, I'd be grateful if you could keep me in the loop with the OWW/OCW connection. They've approached us several times about depositing the BE.109 class material into their bank but there have been logistical obstacles that may or may not still exist. Thanks --[[User:Nkuldell|Natalie]]

Some discussion topics that might be worth bringing up with OCW folks...(just brainstorming, please edit excessively).

#We want to get all the advice we can from OCW about how they convinced faculty members that OCW was worthwhile.

#Can course content on OWW be easily published on OCW?
+
 
-
#*At the end of the semester, we could potentially rip the static html versions of each page and port them to OCW?  This would provide an archival, static snapshot of the course that could reside on OCW.

#*The disadvantage of this approach is that it would lose the content on the talk pages.  However, there is not a lot of content on the talk pages.

#The primary advantage of OWW over OCW is that students get essentially an equal opportunity to contribute to class materials as instructors.
+
*[[OpenWetWare:Courses/QandA]]
-
#*Currently, there are some mechanisms for students to contribute to class material on OCW. For example, there are discussion boards on Stellar sites (I think) but they are probably pretty under-utilized. Does the wiki mechanism enable/encourage more class participation?

*[[OpenWetWare:Courses/OpenCourseWare]]
-
#OCW also uses a Creative Common license but excludes commercial uses of the work whereas OWW permit commercial uses of the work. Is this is concern?  (Probably not an issue for courses published on OWW first).
