School of Open: Research Findings

Research study by Jane Park and Beck Pitt in year 2013 on School of Open (SOO) courses to find out more about those participating in SOO courses and what kind of impact the courses are having.

Their main areas of focus are:

  1. Student satisfaction
  2. Use of OER and other online resources
  3. What participants look for when selecting OER
  4. Whether informal means of assessment motivated students to learn

Part 2

Although the samples are in small scale, but this results are quite interesting to know how the learners reacted. This same questionnaires will be run again on the same four courses during Spring 2014 to produce useful comparative/additional data.
