The University of California, Irvine’s OCW is a web-based repository of various UC Irvine courses and video lectures from UC Irvine faculty, seminar participants, and instructional staff. While the great majority of courses are drawn from graduate, undergraduate, and continuing education programs, some were originally produced under grant funding to serve specific needs in California and elsewhere. UC Irvine’s OCW is open and available to the world for free, complete with syllabi, exams and assignments. Users can access the courses via 9 main subject areas, select individual lecture videos on a particular topic, or opt for one of 10 “Collections” - curated sets of instructional materials and videos from seminars, lecture series and classes. Recorded academic conferences are also available to view via the site. Course files and pages can be downloaded (with the exception of videos which are referenced only by URL)
Accessing the content does not require any registration and the site does not grant degrees or certificates.
