Open educational resources provide permissions that allow us to revise and improve open content. When we combine OER with learning data, we can identify where to focus these improvements to strengthen learning. This workshop introduces participants to analytical methods and openly licensed tools you can use to assess how well OER content supports learning. Learn what types of data contribute to this process, how to analyze it and interpret findings. Join a community-wide collaboration to measure the effectiveness of OER content and make iterative, continuous improvements to better support learning. Bring a device so you can try out the toolkit and even contribute recommended improvements to OER being used by thousands of students.
