Open Yale Courses is a project of Yale University to share full video and course materials from its undergraduate courses.

Open Yale Courses provides free access to a selection of introductory courses, and uses a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike license.

Open Yale Courses launched in December 2007 with seven courses from various departments. The project now includes 42 courses from a broad range of introductory courses taught at Yale college.[1] The initiative was funded by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation,[2] which has supported other universities' OpenCourseWare projects.[3] As of August 2014, some of Yale's Open Courses are delivered by the European MooC platform Eliademy.[4]
