Ruminations on Research on Open Educational Resources | Hewlett Foundation

"This paper explores nine areas of research on OER from policy to development to its relative effectiveness and whether it stimulates innovation. Although existing research is considered, greater attention is given to the possibilities for new research in these areas."

Robert Schuwer's curator insight, January 15, 2014 2:08 AM

A research agenda for OER from Marshall Smith, the visionary thinker behind the OER program of the Hewlett Foundation. He distinguishes four areas where research is most needed:

- Policy: "examine the positive and negative factors in the political environment that influence whether or not governments at various levels will create progressive OER policy." and "examine the characteristics and effectiveness of the variety of educational policies that constrain or enable the use of OER that currently exist in different countries and local jurisdictions"


- Access and Use: "Adding Value by Increasing Access and Going to Scale"


- Effectiveness: "How does OER improve efficiency and learning?"


- Innovation—Investigations into New Ideas and Positive Disruption.


Can serve as a starting point to define a national research agenda for the Netherlands, thereby contributing to a global knowledge base on OER.

A Systematic Analysis and Synthesis of the Empirical MOOC Literature Published in 2013–2015

A Systematic Analysis and Synthesis of the Empirical MOOC Literature Published in 2013–2015 | Open and online learning | Scoop.it

...The goal of this paper is to address a number of gaps in the scholarly understanding of MOOCs and present a comprehensive picture of the literature by examining the geographic distribution, publication outlets, citations, data collection and analysis methods, and research strands of empirical research focusing on MOOCs. We tackle this goal by reviewing relevant literature and situating this study in the context of prior literature; presenting our research questions and describing the methods used to collect data; describing the data analysis methods used to answer each research question; and presenting our results. We conclude by discussing findings and making recommendations for researchers studying MOOC-related topics.
