We are now in the middle of our second sprint for CC search (see results from the last one here) and seeking a new Director of Engineering.
Rice University’s Connexions and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Signal Process Society (IEEE-SPS) recently announced the release of a set of open educational resources on signal processing. The materials allow engineering instructors to mix and match to build customized courses, textbooks and study guides, and are useful for practicing engineers for their own … Read More “IEEE teams up with Connexions to deliver high-quality, peer-reviewed engineering OER”
BitTorrent, a peer-to-peer file sharing protocol, has been embraced by Stanford University in distributing its online engineering courses. Stanford Engineering Everywhere (SEE) launched back in September, offering its open courseware under CC BY-NC-SA. Thanks to Ernesto at TorrentFreak for the tip: “While some universities restrict the use of BitTorrent clients, others embrace the popular flilesharing … Read More “Stanford Courses Available via BitTorrent”
Emulating MIT and a host of other OCW institutions, the Stanford School of Engineering has jumped on the OER bandwagon by releasing ten of its courses online in multiple formats. The pilot open courseware portal, known as Stanford Engineering Everywhere (SEE), is Stanford’s first move towards offering full-length course videos and other materials online for … Read More “Stanford Engineering Tries its Hand at OCW”
