    11. 11. Evaluation OCW: Provisional results (1) <ul><li>Google Analytics </li></ul><ul><li>October 2007 – May 2008 (first round of pilots): 28,000 visits from 23,000 unique visitors with different IP-addresses (100 visits per day average). </li></ul><ul><li>Visitors from 169 countries / 4196 cities: significant geographical exposure of educational material. </li></ul><ul><li>Note: There are more visitors because the material is also published at other websites of the faculties involved (data unfortunately not available). </li></ul>
    12. 12. Evaluation OCW: Provisional Results (2) <ul><li>General </li></ul><ul><li>High appreciation of the initiative; </li></ul><ul><li>Vey positive about the quality of the content; TU Delft ‘signature’ is important; </li></ul><ul><li>Clear website structure </li></ul>
    13. 13. Where do we go from here ? <ul><li>General: </li></ul><ul><li>TU Delft policy: not only open access of educational materials: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>All dissertations (full text); </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Multi-media. Recently, a project has started for the development of a multi-media portal for the disclosure of all streaming video (lecturers), digital cartographic material and historical collections; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Open Access publishing in journals </li></ul></ul><ul><li>More materials are available in digital and new formats (games, VodCast). Tremendous growth in the use of streaming video. How do we make optimal uses of these developments? </li></ul>
    14. 14. Where do we go from here ? <ul><li>Challenges </li></ul><ul><li>Sustainability: how to create (financial) incentives for staff to publish educational materials? </li></ul><ul><li>Different motives: how to create a business model when departments have different motives to participate? Examples of motives : </li></ul><ul><li>Drinking water: more international students, OCW will be integrated in the blended learning modules </li></ul><ul><li>Nanoscience: reputation, more master students </li></ul><ul><li>Industrial Design: Open source design </li></ul><ul><li>Micro Electronics: collaboration with industries (sponsorships) </li></ul>
    15. 15. Outline for the second phase until 2010 <ul><li>Website: From repository to community </li></ul><ul><li>Sustainable business model for the publication of courses </li></ul><ul><li>Include material for other target group </li></ul><ul><li>Editorial board </li></ul><ul><li>Growth number of publications </li></ul><ul><li>PhD-research on OER? </li></ul><ul><li>External Sponsorship? </li></ul>
    16. 16. From repository to community: <ul><li>Add website functionalities: who else used these resources, others who used these resources also used the following documents, number of views, rating, discussion area..; </li></ul><ul><li>Link to other university resources: DIScover (TU Library project to link all kinds of resources integrated in the OCW-website) </li></ul><ul><li>User centered approach for the functional design of the website. Materials of the Open-Source Design project will serve as starting point; </li></ul><ul><li>Depository: other people can add content; </li></ul><ul><li>Additional services like customized support/courses, student projects; </li></ul><ul><li>Communities for people who have shared interest. </li></ul>
