Examples of OER and OCW in for credit courses
Can anyone on the list provide examples where either: 1. A university is accepting, in a degree granting academic program (e.g. a B.S. in Biology) an course from an OCW project (e.g. Courcera, MIT OCW, OERu, Opencourseware Consortium, The Saylor Foundation, Udacity, etc.). That is, I am wondering if there are any examples of a traditional university (University of X) pointing their students to an externally developed, hosted, taught (assessed) OCW course and awarding credits for its completion toward a degree from the university (a B.S. in Biology from University X)? 2. A university teaching an externally developed, managed and hosted OER/OCW course directly (with a university based instructor), and upon successful completion awarding credit toward a degree (B.S. in Biology).
