Remix My Course: R.E.M. Releases New Videos As Open Source

From Marshall Kirkpatrick at ReadWriteWeb - R.E.M. Releases New Videos Under Open Source License
R.E.M. today released 11 videos for the first song from their forthcoming album, all in MP4 format in HD and under an open source license. 'Supernatural Serious,' is the first single from the band's next album, 'Accelerate,' due to be released April 1st.

Viewers are encouraged to remix the videos and share them on the song's YouTube page.
Very interesting approach - a twist on what has been tried by Radiohead and NineInchNails Trent Reznor. I'm fascinated by this idea - imagine taking content from MIT OpenCourseWare and Open Yale courses and remixing them to create your own custom course. What could our students do, if we let them remix our courses?
