The Massachusetts Institute of Technology seeks an Executive Director to
lead its highly successful and pioneering endeavor, OpenCourseWare, in
the next phase of its development.

Launched in the spring of 2001 with over $30 million of gifts and
foundation grants, OCW publishes the educational materials from all MIT
undergraduate and graduate courses on the Web for worldwide use, free
and open to anyone. Over the past six years, OpenCourseWare has become
one of MIT's most important global outreach activities, with over a
million visitors each month - more than two million if one includes the
affiliated sites around the world that host OCW mirrors and
translations.  Within MIT, OpenCourseWare is evolving to become a major
pillar of the university*s educational technology infrastructure,
providing students, faculty, and alumni with a shared, comprehensive
collection of the Institute's resources, together with services that
rely on this collection.  Beyond MIT, OpenCourseWare has become
emblematic of the burgeoning movement for Open Educational Resources,
which sees in modern communications technology and the Worldwide Web the
opportunity for the whole of humanity to share, use, and reuse
knowledge.

In November 2007, OCW met its initial goal to publish educational
materials representing all 1800 MIT subjects.  MIT is now seeking an
extraordinary leader to create even greater value and broader impact
through the OCW initiative.  Reporting to the Office of the Provost, and
with the assistance of a distinguished 18-member external advisory
committee, the Executive Director will guide the development of
programmatic initiatives, institutional partnerships, and external
support for OCW.

The successful candidate will be: a visionary leader who can realize
new internal and external opportunities for pre-eminent educational and
research institutions presented by the changing dynamics of the Web; a
seasoned technology manager, ready to run and advance a major
information technology project that has worldwide reach; a
service-oriented implementer able simultaneously to meet the demands of
a world-class faculty and student body and a global community of users;
an articulate and engaging representative for MIT on the world stage,
and the steward of one of MIT's major outreach initiatives; and a
creative developer of a sustainable OCW operation with understanding of
both web-based business models and academic resource development
activities.

Applications and nominations may be submitted in confidence to:

Vivian C. Brocard and Alan Wichlei
Isaacson, Miller
334 Boylston Street, Suite 500
Boston, MA 02116

Electronic submission of material is strongly encouraged.


MIT is strongly and actively committed to diversity within its
community and particularly
encourages applications from qualified women and ethnic minority
candidates.
