Explore ways to use student outcomes to measure the value of open educational resources with the Midwestern Higher Education Compact and its National Consortium of Open Educational Resources partners.

This new focus is based on research of how the framework was developed to assess the value of OER for colleges and universities. As part of that work, we conducted a landscape analysis to better understand how course marking related to OER is being conducted at U.S.-based colleges and universities.

In this webinar, we will share the findings of our national landscape analysis, including data related to institutions’ course marking processes, data validation processes, use of course marking data, technology use, and motivations for course marking of OER. We will also preview our conversations with a national advisory group exploring the collection and use of course marking data related to OER.
