OpenCourseWare (OCW) is an international program of teaching electronic publication of the content of courses of universities created in 2001 by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. More than 200 universities and other institutions of higher education are concentrated in the OpenCourseWare Consortium. OpenCourseWare UA It is one of the partner universities and also one which they have more courses in the world Consortium, was created in 2007.
OCW UA aims to end not only the publication, but also free access and the generation of new content shared among teachers, so it integrates the assignment of a free license. It is not necessary that the course to publish is simultaneously providing its publication, but that in the same way, can publish courses already extinct or educational projects not already offered by changes in curricula.

How is a course on OpenCourseWare
Each course is a web site and its structure of publication includes the publication of the programme, objectives, methodology, bibliography, internet resources, notes, learning activities, practices, resolved, videos, audios, images, examinations already carried out exercises and more that grows every year. This structure is as open as you want the teacher, and his only condition is that the contents that appear are autoarchivados in the repository of the AU. All the contents are transferred with the free license that choose the teacher, although the most commonly used is CreativeCommons.
