  2. 2. OLnet  is     searching  out  the   evidence  for     effec4ve  OER,   and  building  an     Evidence  Hub     —  a  living    map     by,  of  and  for   the  OER  movement  —   and  those  we  need   to  impact  http://www.flickr.com/photos/bartelomeus/4184705426/
  3. 3. Phenomena of interestanalytics on qualitative aspects of discourse•  What is the impact/significance of this resource, or concept?•  Who is tackling this challenge?•  What claims are being made?•  What is the evidence to support this view?•  Who is building on whose work? ...analytics such as these are central to knowledge-building, but cannot be derived from unstructured discourse platforms (cf. CSCL/CSCA research esp. CSILE/KnowledgeForum: Scardamalia & Bereiter)
