Welcome to the Leiden University Open Learning Lab.

The Leiden University Open Courseware System (OCW) has been developed in cooperation by Delft University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology was adopted and implemented into the present architecture of educational support IT-systems. Currently, the existing system is an almost identical copy of the Delft University OCW. A suitable appliance and workflow still has to be devised. In order to find the best way of using the OCW system, four pilot projects are executed on different faculties. These projects will be run for a period of two years (January2011 - December2012), each emphasizing a different topic studied from a specific frame of reference. The projects should also serve a considerable educational goal, for each project has to provide 40 EC points of educational value.

This Open Learning Lab has been created in order to implement Open Courseware dissemination in a suitable manner and to support their teaching in a digital world. 

Leiden University

The OpenCourseWare webpage gives a glimpse of several master’s courses available at Leiden University. The webpage describes the courses and publishes the course materials that support the classroom interactions. All materials are openly available. OpenCourseWare displays elements of the teaching programs provided at Leiden University, including the course content, the lecturers and the subjects.
