The Opencast Matterhorn project is officially underway with the announcement of grant funding totalling $1.3 million from the Andrew W. Mellon and William and Flora Hewlett foundations. This funding, along with the contributions and commitments from UC Berkeley and our 12 partner institutions, will enable an international team to develop software that will support the scheduling, capture, encoding and delivery of educational content to video-and-audio sharing sites such as YouTube and iTunes, so that learners can access lectures when and where they need it. The Opencast Matterhorn platform is scheduled to be up and running by summer 2010.
