Accessibity and OER survey questions

  1. 1. Accessibility and OERs   This survey is being conducted by Anna Gruszczynska on behalf of SCORE (Support Centre for Open Resources in Education at Open  University) as part of a project exploring issues of accessibility in the context of Open Educational Resources (OERs), where OERs are teaching  and learning materials available freely online at point of access for everyone to use, re­use, share and repurpose. The survey seeks  perspectives of educators who are involved with using, creating and sharing educational content online, regardless of their familiarity with  OER initiatives.    In the context of this research project, accessibility refers to the ability of web­based resources to be viewed, navigated and read by everyone,  including learners with additional needs, which may be due to auditory, visual, mobility, and/or cognitive impairments.    The survey should take a maximum of 20 minutes to complete and any comments on the survey can be made at the end or by contacting the  author. The data will be anonymised and used for research purposes only. Further information about the project can be obtained by visiting  project wiki oeraccessibility.pbworks.com or by contacting Anna Gruszczynska a.gruszczynska@shu.ac.uk. The researcher would like to thank  SCORE for their support for this research project.    Page 1
