In the past, students spent hours upon hours hunkered down with textbooks and notebooks, poring over the material assigned to them by their teachers. In a digital world, the student's academic experience is QUITE different. Sure, we still have our textbooks and they're invaluable to the knowledge we gain from our classes, but the use of OpenCourseWare adds dimension and depth to the curriculum. Staring at a book when the material can be dry (depending on the class, of course) can get cumbersome. Students learn in all different ways so it is beneficial to give them a variety of materials to stimulate their interests. Students are more engaged when their content is interactive and visual.
