In recent years, there has been a growing trend in international level by many educational institutions that try to develop and offer Open Courses and educational material.
An example is the OpenCourseWareConsortium. The experience gathered so far from the collaborating institutions is included in the following guide. Part of of this website's content comes from this guide.
Current Situation in Greece
Every year, over 42,000 undergraduate courses and several thousands postgraduate courses are taught in the 488 existent academic departments. The instruction includes educational material such as notes, presentations, lectures, educational software, and online exercises. However, until now, in most cases, the educational material remains unavailable or it is not easily accessible in digital form from a single point of view. This material is also limited to be provided only in the narrow context of each academic audience, without being spread to the society.
