Rice One-ups MIT on Being Open

Inspired by the MIT Open Courseware project, Rice university has created a site (article) where colleges and professors can provide their own course materials for free.

Unlike MIT's program, which simply takes the material they use already and publishes it on the web, the Rice program is much more ambitious -- they aim to be the Sourceforge of educational materials, a central repository of courses that anyone can contribute to, where users can examine, review, and rank the material.
