TU DELFT OPENCOURSEWARE: FROM REPOSITORY TO COMMUNITY

J. Verberk, W.F. van Valkenburg, J. Groot Kormelink

Delft University of Technology (NETHERLANDS)
In October 2007 Delft University of Technology started with its OpenCourseWare project. In the first year a pilot phase was started. Six different MSc programs participated in the pilot phase. The pilot phase has been evaluated as very successful. As a result of the pilot phase the technical infrastructure and the organizational structure (including hands-on support) are in place (http://ocw.tudelft.nl/home/). The results of the external evaluation and specifically in the case study ‘water management’ show that the OpenCourseWare initiative is strongly acknowledged by external users. Spin-off from the project is that it leads to a higher quality of the material (external visibility). The central board of the University asked the project team to write a proposal for the next phase. The next phase of the OpenCourseWare project (1/1/2009 – 31/12/2010) was approved in December 2009.

In this presentation/paper the following aspects are discussed:
• Pilot phase (2007/2008) in general: Set-up of the pilot phase, organizational structure/workflow and results of the evaluation;
• The specific goals and deliveries of OpenCourseWare material in the field of Water Management (in which TU Delft has a strong international reputation) including the method the material is being reused by different target groups and the method it is integrated into future blended learning courses;
• The next phase (broadening the project): where do we go from here?
