UNU OpenCourseWare

Posted in Uncategorized by scarsonmsm on February 1, 2008

I’ll never get tired of seeing new OpenCourseWares come on line. Every new OCW brings excitement at the possibilities for how the movement can help to improve our world. United Nations University’s recently launched OpenCourseWare strikes this chord particularly powerfully. A sample of some of the courses:

PhD Course UNU-MERIT 2.1 – Environment and Sustainable Development, Spring 2007

UNU-INWEH Course 1 – Training Course on Mangroves and Biodiversity
UNU-IIST Course 3 – Structures and Processes for Implementing and Operating e-Governance

More sustainable development, better environmental stewardship, better governance. These courses are tools that can truly make a difference. Congrats to the team at UNU!
