In the journal Open Learning: The Journal of Open and Distance Learning, Fred Mulder and myself have reported about effects of our OpenER-experiment. A.o. we have surveyed users about the effect of offering open courses to their study behaviour and study plans. If you are interested, I can mail you a copy of the paper (there seem no way to upload it here in Cloudworks). Mail to email@example.com.

The journal issue Robert refers to is on OER. It has a number of interesting case studies along with his own.
Exceptionally, the editor has made this issue of OER available as free access. You can reach it at the following link.

Candace talk at Monterey meeting:
Focus on OERs was to design and make them available. Later it was realised that we needed to look at use, promote use. But as a life cycle for OEr it is not enough. We want design, use, reuse and evaluation, so we can think of an OER effectiveness cycle.
The tools and resources that are being created can be reused amongst other effectiveness cycles, that's how we aim to build the network.
We want to gather ideas on what constitute evidence for the effectiveness of OERs. It is bigger than evaluating the OER itself.

Student use. How to track use of OER? Necessary to show institution that investment is being utilized. Is OER improving learning outcomes? Which modules are being used/most effective for students?
Ideas - Build in features where student must click on a button to continue, which can be tracked. Embed feedback section that students should fill out.
Teacher use. Track who adopts OER? Do they continue to use it?
Ideas - Re-adoption as a measure of quality. Use assessment from other classes/schools as measure of quality.
