Thank you for the great links.

Please advice the Community in case there are other OpenCourseWare opportunities that have been left unmentioned.

Dear Steffen, all,

This seems to be indeed a very interesting endeavor. In particular the
"creation of open and evolving content with interactive,
community-oriented feedback sessions" seems an interesting concept. Have
you seen our OpenCOurseWare authoring platform SlideWiki
http://slidewiki.org - its now open-source, used with dozens of courses,
several hundred students. There are btw. also comprehensive lecture
series on Semantic Web, Information Retrieval, Intelligent Systems. The
Semantic Web lecture (>700 slides, >100 self-assessment questions) is
available in 12 languages (Thai, French Portuguese, Spanish, Italian,
Hindi, Greek, Persian, Arabic, Russian, German, English). We are really
interested to build a larger user/author communities around SlideWiki
content and any ideas in that regard are highly appreciated.
