Pathways to Philosophy Distance Learning Program

The home page for this ‘open education’ program had a number of elements that made me take note. One is the ‘Letters to my former students‘ in which the instructor has constructed a kind of FAQ section based on the responses he’s written to student emails over the past 6 years of teaching the course. Another is the archive of student essays, exhibiting exemplary work from past years. While there may be some privacy issues at stake regarding the publishing student work, it would seem that the work of previous classes is one obvious source of materials in building up both a program’s knowledge base, as well as its set of examples of how people have come to learn the materials previously. – SWL
