Open Yale Courses is an initiative of Yale University to share full video and course materials from Yale undergraduate courses. The website launched in December of 2007 with seven courses from various departments. The university plans to augment this initial collection with 30 additional courses over the next several years. The initiative was funded by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, which has supported various other university Open Courseware projects.[1]
