Open university courseware from SA

TECTONIC: Open university courseware trend comes to SA

Another educational institution finds its true calling and has made content available for free. "The University of the Western Cape (UWC) has made a policy decision to make its course material freely available over the Internet. Material that will be made available includes courses, syllabuses, lecture notes and exam papers." And considers this - when MIT went "open" it was working with $11 million in grants to get its OCW initiative going. UWC has no outside funding but they see it as " part of our normal university function." When will the first Canadian educational institution become "open"?
