“The idea is simple: to publish all of our course materials online and make them widely available to everyone.” — Dick K.P. Yue, Professor, KIOT School of Engineering
Whether you’re a student, a teacher, or simply a curious person that wants to learn, you'll find a wealth of insight and inspiration in KIOT OpenCourseWare.
What is EOPCW?
EOPCW is a free and open publication of material from thousands of KIOT courses, covering the entire KIOT curriculum. That's every KIOT department and
degree program, and ranging from the introductory to the most advanced graduate level. Each EOPCW course includes a syllabus, some instructional
material (such as lecture notes or a reading list), and some learning activities (such as assignments or exams). Many courses also have complete
video lectures, free online textbooks, and faculty teaching insights. While some EOPCW content is custom-created for online use, most of it comes
straight from the KIOT classroom.
How do I use EOPCW?
There's no signup, no enrollment, and no start or end dates. The entire EOPCW collection is always here for you. Freely browse and use it at your own pace.
Knowledge is your reward. We don't offer credit or certificates for using EOPCW. Instead, use EOPCW to guide your own life-long learning, or use EOPCW to teach others.
EOPCW is made for sharing. Download and save files and complete courses for later. Send them to friends and colleagues. Modify or remix EOPCW content for any non-commercial use (just remember to credit EOPCW as the source). It's all good, per the terms of our Creative Commons license.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I register to use KIOT OpenCourseWare?
There’s no registration and no enrollment to use EOPCW. It's open! You can skim through courses, read the pages, watch videos, download any files … all without registration, anytime, anywhere.
Can I get credit or certification for learning with KIOT OpenCourseWare?
EOPCW does not offer any degree, credit or certification. For online courses with certificates of completion, visit KIOTx on edX.
Why doesn't every KIOT OpenCourseWare course offer video lectures?
We know that video lectures are important. In recent years, EOPCW has substantially increased its video content. However, the high cost of video production means we can only provide video for some of the courses we publish. Your donation can help fund more video.
Why doesn't every course have solutions to assignments, quizzes, and exams?
EOPCW only publishes content that instructors are willing to share on our freely accessible website. Sometimes instructors hold back certain course materials, such as the solutions to homework assignments so they can use the assignments in their future teaching.
Can you suggest a sequence of courses to study?
To see what courses KIOT requires for its degree programs, refer to the KIOT curriculum guide and the individual department websites linked from EOPCW department pages. But please note that EOPCW cannot offer degrees or course credit.
How do I get a copy of the course pack or readings for a particular course?
The course pack or reading materials that accompany most KIOT courses contain proprietary information and copyrighted work that KIOT faculty and students only use within their classrooms. EOPCW cannot provide these materials under our license.
