Take Our Open Educational Resources Survey and Win an iPad Mini

OER Edu Survey Blog

OER Edu Survey Blog

Open Educational Resources are high-quality, openly licensed, online educational materials that may be freely used and shared without cost. The use of these high quality instructional materials has been accelerating with support from organizations like The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources, the K–12 OER Collaborative, and OpenCurriculum.org.

The open resources available to K-12 and higher education are not only high quality and up-to-date, but offer additional choices that can significantly reduce expenditures for instructional materials and provide schools with needed flexibility. For an introduction to this concept and pointers to some of the most popular OER sites, see the blog Free Learning for Everyone…With a Wireless Connection – Taking Advantage of Open Educational Resources.

ipadMiniTo steer the development of OER and encourage both its creation and adoption, Extreme Networks is sponsoring a survey on the topic. You can help by taking two minutes to complete the survey; and be entered in a raffle for an iPad mini. The survey will provide information on how quickly OER is spreading, and the benefits and drawbacks that users are experiencing.

Whether or not you have direct experience with Open Educational Resources, your responses are important to us. We know you’re busy, so the whole process will take under two minutes. Please take a quick moment to complete our short survey on Open Educational Resources (OER). We will share the results with you as soon as the survey completes.  Thanks for your help!
