Sharing Educational Material

This is a good time to take a look at Rice University's Connexions project, also supported by The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. It is described as "a place to view and share educational material made of small knowledge chunks called modules that can be organized as courses, books, reports, etc. Anyone may view or contribute."

At present, Connexions has more than 4,000 modules available, in nearly 250 collections. One example is The Emergence of Modern Biotechnology in China, a module developed by Dr. Shaheen Lakhan, Director of the California-based Global Neuroscience Initiative Foundation.
