The OpenCourseWare Consortium - OCWC User Feedback Survey Results

The OpenCourseWare Consortium - OCWC User Feedback Survey Results | Opening Up Education | Scoop.it

44% of respondents indicate that OCW materials help them with the concepts they are studying. 51% also use these materials for specific projects, or to supplement or even create teaching materials. Of particular interest is the fact that 51% of respondents find OCW materials useful in order to update their skills or knowledge for and at work. In addition, 54% reported having found OCW materials useful for their own interests

 

In their responses to "In what ways could OCW be improved" user feedback highlighted mainly the need for better categorization of courses according to subject areas, disciplines and content type in order to improve search-ability of appropriate content, the need for more content in specific subject areas, the inclusion of various types of content such as audio, video, assessment grids or lecture notes not available in some courses, the need for setting up of online communities organized around courses in order to discuss ideas and clarify course concepts, the need for availability of courses and of OCWC site content in multiple languages, the need to consider possibilities for validating learning via OCW courses, and the need for increased awareness about OCW.

ORIOLEproject: SURVEY

Tim Seal's insight:

In 2013 a new, shorter and more international version of that survey is in circulation (during February-April). You are invited to take part in that survey

Gabi Witthaus's curator insight, February 25, 2013 10:22 AM

The OER university (http://wikieducator.org/OERu) celebrated its second birthday last week. A bold and visionary group of higher institutions around the world, numbering 23 now, will soon be offering formal accreditation to learners who will study from OERs. The aim is to enable flexible, affordable, high quality higher education to adults on a mass scale.
