OECD launches new survey on OER
OECD’s Centre for Educational Research and Innovation is carrying out a study on Open Educational Resources (OER) in higher education. As one part of that study OECD is launching a web based survey for individual teachers, instructors and researchers using and producing OER.
Anyone who is working in a higher educational institution that uses or produces open learning content, such as courses, courseware, content modules, learning objects, collections and journals, or open software tools to develop, use, re-use and deliver learning content, is invited to take the survey. It will not take more than 10-15 minutes to complete. A report with the findings will be published on the OECD website.
In 2006 OECD’s Centre for Educational Research and Innovation carried out a study on Open Educational Resources (OER) in higher education. The report from the study was published in May 2007 by the OECD under the title "Giving Knowledge for Free -- The Emergence of Open Educational Resources".
