NJIT: The Edge in Knowledge
NJIT is a member of the worldwide OpenCourseWare Consortium. NJIT’s OpenCourseWare (OCW) site offers free and open digital publication of high-quality educational materials, organized as courses. Some courses can be viewed in video, while others are only in audio. Course lecture notes and presentations are also posted for some courses.
“It wasn’t too long ago that people paid a sizable sum of money to buy CDs of the best lectures of top university professors,” said Gale Spak, associate vice president of Continuing Professional Education at NJIT. “Now thanks to this Consortium, this information is free. There is no reason for anyone anymore not to have undergraduate and graduate-level material at their fingertips. Self-learners and busy professionals in need of just-in-time knowledge are big users of this source.”
