I love my job…

I don’t think I’ve blogged about how much I love my job, lately. I mean, I haven’t just loved it lately, I’ve loved it for a long time. I just haven’t mentioned it in the past little bit.

I am the director of Utah State’s OpenCourseWare project, and we’ve got 70 courses online. They are more than just ‘free’, they are ‘open’, which is even better. It means you can take the content, modify it, build upon it, and re-share it with the world.

Last winter I was given some additional responsibilities. Instead of just helping out with USU OCW, I was asked to act as director of the Utah OpenCourseWare Alliance. Today, we’ve passed a milestone. We now have 8 schools in the state involved with OpenCourseWare, and we have passed the 100 courses mark. You can visit the Utah Alliance site here, or see the entire list of courses here.

It’s nice to like your job. I was sick all last week, and I missed the work. I count myself lucky.

    I wish my hubby could find one like yours. I’m glad to hear how much you like your job…so many people don’t, they just hang on to feed the family. It’s fun to hear about all the stuff you’re doing outside of writing…but hows the book coming along??? Enquiring minds want to know…lol

    The book is in…,what do you call it, research mode? That is code for ‘ain’t doing nothing just yet’. :)
