  • Open and inclusive – to more of the OER movement, Spearheaded by board, approved by members
  • Project showcase is about keeping the community updated on what members are doing;
  • Case studies being developed around uses and impact of OCW
  • Who are we impacting? Conduct a short survey on our site
  • We were surprised to learn that the majority of our users have never used or never heard of OCW. We realized that before we make OCW resources accessible on our site, we need to educate our readers as to what OCW is and how they can use it. To that end, we are publishing informational articles about OCW on our blog (wanted to make “blog” a hyperlink to our blog post but apparently hyperlinks aren’t available in the notes section of PPT.)
