Like we’ve always said: Good things come to those who’re open. So when Harvard and MIT released a dataset based on their MOOC offerings, we decided to give and get good things by releasing our own dataset for Canvas Network.
It’s been three years since our very first courses, including David Wiley’s aptly themed “Introduction to Openness in Education,” went live on Canvas Network. Since then, we’ve partnered with educators, institutions, and organizations around the world to deliver more than 500 open courses to 665,000 learners—nearly half of whom reside outside of North America.
All that open learning generated a lot of data. So in the spirit of openness and for the good of education, today we’re announcing the release of our dataset via the Canvas Network page on Dataverse.
To see the data, request additional access, or learn more about the project (a.k.a. our good things in the form of open course data) visit https://dataverse.harvard.edu/dataverse/cn.
