A Sustainable Model for OpenCourseWare Development
Educational Technology Research and Development Volume 59, Number 3, ISSN 1042-1629
The purposes of this study were to (a) determine the cost of converting BYU Independent Study's e-learning courses into OpenCourseWare, (b) assess the impact of opening those courses on paid enrollment in the credit-bearing versions of the courses, and (c) use these data to judge whether or not an OpenCourseWare program could be financially self-sustaining over the long-term without grant monies or other subsidies. The findings strongly suggest that the BYU Independent Study model of publishing OpenCourseWare is financially self-sustaining, allowing the institution to provide a significant public good while generating new revenue and meeting its ongoing financial obligations.
