Is OpenCourseWare Hitting the Mainstream?

A quick news break: has released today a new list, “The 50 Best Web Sites of 2009,” and right along­side some well known brands, you’ll find Aca­d­e­m­ic Earth, a new ven­ture that aggre­gates high qual­i­ty uni­ver­si­ty video. Essen­tial­ly, Aca­d­e­m­ic Earth pulls togeth­er videos from top-notch uni­ver­si­ties and lets users watch them with a very user-friend­ly inter­face. And that’s why we’ve pre­vi­ous­ly fea­tured them in our pop­u­lar col­lec­tion: Intel­li­gent Video: The Top Cul­tur­al & Edu­ca­tion­al Video Sites. Is open course­ware final­ly hit­ting the main­stream? It seems so. Con­grats, Richard!
