OCW Search engines

In addition to our search engine which is provided in collaboration with MERLOT, we would also like to highlight the following search engine specifically designed for locating OpenCourseWare and OER.

Semantic Course Search (Serendipity)

Serendipity, unlike other traditional OER search engines, allows users explore in an integrated and incremental manner. It offers guided navigation, starting with a basic keyword and going through several filters to refine the desired search and access the full description of the courses as published by the home institution. The project is sponsored by the research group GICAC from the Universidad Politecnica de Madrid (UPM) and the Universitad Particular Tecnica de Loja (UTPL) in collaboration with the Open Education Consortium (OEC).
