Please help with Accessibility and OERs Survey

Please could you take part in a survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/oeraccessibility looking at accessibility issues and web-based teaching materials?

 

The survey is being conducted by Anna Gruszczynska on behalf of SCORE (Support Centre for Open Resources in Education at Open University) as part of a project exploring issues of accessibility in the context of Open Educational Resources (OERs), where OERs are teaching and learning materials available freely online at point of access for everyone to use, re-use, share and repurpose. The survey seeks perspectives of educators who are involved with using, creating and sharing educational content online, regardless of their familiarity with OER initiatives.

 

Thank you for taking the time to participate and to inform research about factors which might motivate OER creators and re-users to embed accessibility within their teaching materials. Further information about the project can be obtained by visiting project wiki oeraccessibility.pbworks.com http://oeraccessibility.pbworks.com/w/page/52491501/FrontPage or by contacting Anna Gruszczynska a.gruszczynska@shu.ac.uk. The researcher would like to thank SCORE for their support for this research project.

How are OER evaluated and so what?

Adopters and authors may evaluate and improve OER quality and utility. But who actually evaluates OER? Why? How? Should they improve? What are the issues?

Invitation to review USQ's OER Course guide example - WikiEducator

Invitation to review USQ's OER Course guide example - WikiEducator | OER quality research project #oerqs | Scoop.it

A sample "course guide" (could also be called a course handbook) has been produced by the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) as a sort of template for other courses produced by members of the OER university network. This page on Wikieducator (the communication hub for the OER university) breaks down the elements of the course guide, provides a brief rationale for the key elements and features, and seeks comments on the format and structure of the guide.

 

It looks like a useful template for everyone producing whole courses as OERs.
