Utah leading the way?

Exciting news from the Utah legislature. They have They have given a chunk of change to USU to help fund opencoruseware in the state. According to David Wiley, who would know, they are the first state or federal government to support the OCW movement, and the second legislative body in the world to do so.

Exciting stuff...

Does this mean your position will be more permanent?

No, the money was given to USU to help kickstart a state wide initiative in OCW. Since USU already has 60 courses, most of the money will go toward getting other schools up and running. But it's great to see that the legislator sees the benefit, and we will be seeing more courses from more schools.
