What is OpenLearn...

…and who are OpenLearners? It’s a question that’s been in my head for quite a while now.

Each week I run the stats which show how many people have visited the site overall, and how many have visited LabSpace and LearningSpace in particular. We report how many people have registered on OpenLearn, and how many people who have visited the site have registered on an OU course in the same session. We keep track on the top ten units, dwell time, page…

OpenLearn Netvibes Universe

Well, after a long(ish) pregnancy the OpenLearn Netvibes Universe has finally been born. We’re the first University in Europe to have representation in a Universe (in fact Tom Hadfield’s work on the Harvard Universe is the only other University Universe I’m aware of).

We don’t yet show up in the search so I’m not sure which category we fall under (I assume it will either be `organisations’ or `non-profit’), but either way I’m hoping that…

As you may know, I've been doing quite a few experiements with various

web 2.0 tools (Pageflakes, Netvibes, yourminis, Grazr, Dapper etc), and

in the next week or two I want to do an experiment with Digg - I'm

going to put up a story about openlearn and the top ten popular units,

to see how many people visit the site go on to continue to learn from

our free materials.

If you have a digg account would you be willing to digg my experimental

story? I… Continue

Hi Stuart, thanks for the add. I work in a Development Team at the University of Sheffield Library. We are considering making our online information literacy tutorials available through JORUM so am interested in how this has gone at the OU.

Hello, Stuart!
Thank you for adding me to your list. The openlearn project is of great interest to me for a number of reasons. Currently, I'm managing a virtual library that is battling DRM (digital rights management) issues. I will be looking at your web site to see how its being handled in your corner of the universe.

Thank you for the invitation! I can't wait to check out your openlearn web site. I am in Library Development and a large part of our projects focus on training for librarians and trustees.

Hi, Stuart. Thanks for the friend request. The Open University is quite interesting. There probably could be a Open Library component to it for assisting students just as you would do in a regular college library.

Hi Stuart,
Thanks for the invite. I used to work at a community college - City and Islington College in London, and I worked a little bit on testing some 'learning objects'; I'm interested in open learning and I'm going to your open learning website now!
