    I feel that if you are representing the college either as an active student or as an employer you share information the same way. Like if your supervisor or Major Research Advisor was reading the material. You need to remember that you are always representing the institution not matter your level within. Yes, it is an open learning environment and free speech applies but within the guidelines of the institution. I would check with any ethics committee at your institution or public affairs or legal counsel. Hope this helps

    Aren't all the major universities, and many of the community colleges, doing this now on iTunes? Completely free of charge, you can download audio or in some cases video podcasts (though sometimes the slides are not shown, due to copyright issues) of entire classes. For many of these classes, on the corresponding open university website for the university in question, you can download the syllabus (with the course texts, the reading assignments, and so on) and other handouts as well. It's fantastic.

    And the latest from Apple was the Announcement on the creation of E-books. THIS WORLD IS CHANGING AND OPEN. I even use a new website called OPEN STUDY whrere my students can obtain help from other students around the world. As RedWood girl said, ITUNES U has it all. You can take any course for free. The catch is, there is no college credit for it. For that you will have to pay, which is understandable. The knowledge content, however, is free. wmw

    I'm currently a student and my university (like most) uses a website for professors and students to post and receive assignments, grades, help from other students, wikis, etc. The class discussions and syllabus information is archived after the semester ends, but you can access it at any time. Of course, the website is only accessible to students and professors, or more broadly, people with University IDs, but there is nothing to stop one from sharing the information with people outside the university. It parallels places like Open Study, where learning takes interactive participation from the audience. So universities are already using the internet to share within their colleges. As other answers before me have pointed out, iTunesU and other resources also exist to allow learning to continue outside the classroom.
