note: this is a work in progress


The research the university produces is open access.

???

The course materials are open education resources

  • We have a working group for this, with some faculty, staff, and students. We have a mailing list. We will hopefully assemble a more detailed report on our progress soon.
  • lecture notes, lab assignments, and even practice exams for computer science courses tend to be openly accessible online. However, they are not advertised as open education resources. furthermore, the course materials are often "sawtoothed"--the materials are made available as the lectures happen and homeworks are assigned, and everything is set back to zero at the beginning of the next term. However, this is not always the case. check it out for yourself at course pages of the dartmouth compsci website.

The university embraces free software and open standards.

???

If the university holds patents, it readily licenses them for free software, essential medicines, and the public good.

???

The university network reflects the open nature of the internet.
