Setting Learning Free

LinuxInsider has an article on the global reach of the open courseware movement:

"At the moment, the open courseware movement seems unstoppable, yet most of the initiatives can only carry on through outside funding. Whether universities or governments will want to continue paying to make course materials widely available once this funding runs out is debatable. Putting courseware online may attract new students to an institution, but then again it may not -- and the more universities that get in on the act, the smaller the advantage for any individual institution in doing so."
