Open Course Library, Phase I-II

An update on the Open Course Library (OCL)

1. When will the first 42 courses be available?

Phase 1 (the first 42 courses) will be available by the end of October 2011. We are committed to creating accessible course materials, so all faculty-created videos will be captioned before each course is released.

2. What is the timeline for phase 2?

Phase 2 course development will begin winter 2012. The phase 2 request for proposals will be announced in early fall 2011. Here is the phase 2 timeline:

  • Fall 2011: request for proposals and faculty selection
  • Winter-Spring 2012: Design courses
  • Fall 2012: Pilot courses
  • Winter 2013: Final course revisions
  • Spring 2013: Add video captions
  • Summer 2013: Release phase 2 courses

3. What courses are included in phase 1 and 2?

Here is a list of phase 1 and 2 Open Course Library courses.
