Larry Cooperman and Gary Matkin - run through the reasons they have found for UCI to adopt OCW:

  1. Serve current students
  2. Attract new students
  3. Support faculty
  4. Facilitate accountability and continuous improvement
  5. Advance institutional recognition
  6. Support public service role
  7. Disseminate results of research and attract research students
  8. Serve as a repository of digital assets
  9. Serve learning communities (of all types)
  10. Enhance international service and reputation
Trying to behave something else - flag up future experience rather than necessarily a "course".  The other side is what to do to get buy in from the university:
  1. A website to be proud of
  2. Help students and facult
  3. Leverage and support existing units
  4. Build an inventory - and spread it around
  5. Create miro demonstrations and publicise them
  6. Get media attention internal and external
