Having provided high quality educational services for both its students and many other learners throughout the world by making the course materials available online through the Internet since 2009, Eastern Mediterranean University gained the membership of Turkish Open Courseware Consortium (www.acikders.org.tr) supported by Turkish Academy of Sciences last year and is now a proud member of International Open Course Ware Consortium (OCW Consortium – www.ocwconsortium.org ).
Supported by world-famous universities such as MIT, Michigan and Berkeley and within the framework of globalising the quality education in higher education project, the Open Course Ware Consortium (OCW) is a non-profit organisation aiming to provide an environment for the effective exchange of original and high quality course materials amongst universities, educational institutions and relevant users.
In 2009, Eastern mediterranean University introduced the open course ware project with the initiation of academic staff members who published and shared their own course materials in the Internet environment. The courses published at http://opencourses.emu.edu.tr have created a platform of information exchange not only for EMU’s own students but also for many other students throughout the world.
With the recently gained OCW membership, our university’s unique course materials that may be accessed at http://ocw.emu.edu.tr were described as high quality and effective by the OCW Consortium Board of Directors, which proves the quality of education offered by Eastern Mediterranean University once again.
Within the framework of the social responsibility involvement, our University is ready share the products of quality education increasing in number day by day both with the EMU community and the world.
