Open Education Week, March 5-10-, 2012, was launched by the OpenCourseWare Consortium and endorsed by UNESCO and a large number of universities and university consortia worldwide. Its goal is to create greater awareness of the many free learning opportunities not only for current students, but for those who would not otherwise have the opportunity. The open education movement seeks to marry educational access and opportunity to learners worldwide free of cost. UCI OpenCourseWare is an important project within this movement and has grown to include nearly 80 full courses as well as hundreds of hours of video lectures. To celebrate Open Education Week, we are providing a 24×7 scheduled webcast of classes, seminars, and events originally presented by UCI professors and lecturers and invited guests.
