10 years of OCW: How tweet it is

As a lead up to the OCW Consortium meeting in May, the Consortium is tweeting out events and user comments from 10 years of OCW over the next 9 weeks. Follow the fun here here.

These tweets are based on my notes and contributions from others across the Consortium and include the events found on the timeline on the MIT OpenCourseWare site.

To manage scope, this mostly reflects institutional efforts, but this is not meant to imply that open sharing of educational materials is limited to the events on this list, nor that open educational sharing began with MIT’s efforts. This timeline simply reflects the institutional efforts that culminated in the OCW Consortium. If you have additions to the timeline, please let me know.
