Education-Portal.com recently ran a survey asking readers to detail their familiarity with OpenCourseWare (OCW), free college course materials available online to any interested learners. We wanted respondents to tell us how they use OCW, what kinds of OCW they find most helpful and more. Here are the results.
One of the key questions Education-Portal.com asked of its readers was how they made use of OCW. Tellingly, about 40% of the survey's respondents answered that they didn't know what OCW was, and 46% said they'd never used it. Those who had used OCW found it valuable for both personal and professional enrichment.
