Ms. Anne Margulies
Executive Director, Open Course Ware
MIT


Anne H. Margulies is the executive director of MIT's bold OpenCourseWare initiative, and brings 20 years of leadership experience in strategic planning, information technology and operations to the MIT OCW project. She came to MIT in May 2002 from FH/GPC, a government relations, public affairs, and communications consulting firm where she was the Chief Operating Officer responsible for the overall performance of the firm.

Prior to her time at FH/GPC, Anne was the executive vice-president of McDermott O'Neill & Associates, where she restructured the senior management team and planned and managed the sale of the company to GPC International. From 1986 to 1998, Anne held information technology positions at Harvard University, serving as assistant provost and executive director for Harvard's Information Systems department with responsibility for all centralized administrative IT activities.

Summary:

MIT OpenCourseWare (MIT OCW) makes the MIT faculty's course materials available on the Web free of charge, to any user, anywhere in the world. With the publication of 500 subjects in September 2003, MIT is delivering on the promise of MIT OCW and open sharing. During this session, Anne Margulies will address the vision of this unique initiative, how the MIT OCW team brought that vision to reality, the long-term publication timeline of MIT OCW, and an explanation of the content available on the site. Ms. Margulies will also discuss the impact of MIT OCW, including recent evaluation data, the benefits of MIT OCW to our audience of educators, students, and self-learners, and will answer the question, what does it all mean? From cost to technology, Ms. Margulies will share all we have learned in bringing the MIT OCW project from concept to reality.
