Access to Education With Online Learning and Open Educational Resources: Can They Close the Gap?

ORIOLE Survey

ORIOLE Survey | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it

If you are involved in using online learning and teaching resources we'd like your feedback for a research project about reuse.

 

The deadline for completing this survey 31 August, which has been prepared by The Open Resources Influence on Learners & Educators (ORIOLE) project (http://orioleproject.blogspot.com/)

 

The survey should take less than 30 minutes of your time. We would really appreciate your input and have offered a 'reward' for completion of the survey. You will be able to nominate three charities from several options, or the same charity up to three times. The top three will each receive a £100 donation on behalf of the survey respondents. So you will be helping us and being charitable too.

 

Sorry the survey will not work on iPad or mobile devices.

 

This is a link to the live survey: http://beehivesurvey.com/wix5/p644523929.aspx

 

But if you would like to check the questions first they are available as a PDF here: https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=explorer&chrome=true&srcid=0B77aM81pfNQ5ZDQ3ZWJmNTUtYWUwYi00MzhmLTllYjgtZjViZjZkZWMzYmY1&hl=en_GB
