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.
