  1. 1. J. Minguillón, E.P. Gil-Rodríguez, P. Rebaque-Rivas, M. Leg Universitat Oberta de Catalunya Barcelona,Spain ICERI 2014 – 17-19 November, Seville, Spain
  2. 2. ž  Institutional repositories ž  Methodology ž  Survey design ž  Results ž  Conclusions ICERI 2014 – 17-19 November, Seville, Spain
  3. 3. ž  Three main goals: •  Preservation •  Dissemination •  Positioning ž  Created and maintained by librarians with the support of the IT department ž  Not fully integrated into VLEs ICERI 2014 – 17-19 November, Seville, Spain
  4. 4. ž  UOC: online university created in 1994 •  Virtual learning environment •  Virtual library •  Institutional repository: O2 (2009) –  DSpace based –  Some additional services (unused) ž  > 50000 students, 2500 teachers ž  ≈ 6000 documents, ≈ 4000000 downloads ICERI 2014 – 17-19 November, Seville, Spain
  5. 5. ž  Design-based research: •  Observation: low usage of the IR repository •  Goal: who is (not) using the IR and why? ž  Mixed methods: •  Qualitative: 15 in-depth interviews (8 teachers) •  Quantitative: survey ž  Technology Acceptance Model ICERI 2014 – 17-19 November, Seville, Spain
  6. 6. ž  Two basic questions: •  IR awareness and usage •  Main reasons ž  Need/interest in additional services ž  Population: UOC full-time and part-time teachers (2497) ž  Sample: 550 answers (22.0%) è 3.69% ICERI 2014 – 17-19 November, Seville, Spain
  7. 7. ž  Gender, Age, Scientific discipline ž  52 items (1-5 Likert scale): •  Institutional recognition •  Incentives •  Social image •  Quality •  Knowledge •  Collaborative attitude ž  IR knowledge, usage, web 2.0 services ICERI 2014 – 17-19 November, Seville, Spain
  8. 8. ž  Gender: 43.5% women, 56.5% men, similar IR knowledge (p = 0.186) but different usage (p = 0.028), more women have never used the IR ž  No difference across ages ž  STEM teachers use it more (p < 0.001) ICERI 2014 – 17-19 November, Seville, Spain
  9. 9. ž  Only 32.7% of the respondants were aware of the IR (CS department è 58.4%) ž  Basic functionalities (agree/totally agree): •  Choosing a license: 33.4% •  Describing through metadata: 21.1% •  Publishing resources: 17.2% •  Advanced search: 12.8% ž  Only 19.4% think the IR is usable ICERI 2014 – 17-19 November, Seville, Spain
  10. 10. ž  Only 2.8% access the IR through the VLE ž  Web 2.0 services: •  Adding comments to a resource (20.8%) •  Ranking a resource (19.7%) •  Sharing a resource (16.8%) •  Favoriting a resource (15.7%) •  Tagging a resource (8.8%) •  Finding similar resources (4.9%) ICERI 2014 – 17-19 November, Seville, Spain
  11. 11. ž  Only 1 out of 3 teachers know about the IR ž  Only 1 out of 9 teachers use it regularly ž  Some “desired” web 2.0 services are barely used (ranking) ž  Nevertheless, more integration within the VLE is desired ICERI 2014 – 17-19 November, Seville, Spain
  12. 12. ž  Study IR potential users ž  Adapt IR to different user profiles ž  Design a usable IR ž  Publicize the IR ž  Improve access to contents ž  Enrich and support user tasks ž  Provide help ž  Promote open access ž  Encourage self-archiving ICERI 2014 – 17-19 November, Seville, Spain
  13. 13. ž  Further survey analysis: •  Structural Equation Modeling: intention è use •  Clustering: teacher profiling ž  Implementation and evaluation of some web 2.0 services ž  Large scale survey (including students) ICERI 2014 – 17-19 November, Seville, Spain
