The Open Syllabus Project Gathers 1,000,000 Syllabi from Universities & Reveals the 100 Most Frequently-Taught Books | Open Culture

Fantastic resource, and interesting to see so many syllabi.  We see other syllabi in #connectedcourses but this is the first time I’ve seen them collected anywhere else.  For those who still feel their syllabus is “their IP”  this is a a big step.  Helpful for any educator.  At first I was surprised at the use of the phrase “frequently taught books,”  but they are referring to works like Plato’s Republic.  Not the text book assumption I made when I first read the article.
