Open Educational Resources (OER) are "teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits their free use and re-purposing by others. Open educational resources include full courses, course materials, modules, textbooks, streaming videos, tests, software, and any other tools, materials, or techniques used to support access to knowledge" (http://www.hewlett.org/programs/education-program/open-educational-resources)
MERLOT (Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching) is a provider of OER, and this short survey asks you to describe the impact that MERLOT has had on your everyday practice. The research is being carried out in collaboration with the OER Research Hub (http://oerresearchhub.org/). We're hoping to add your stories to a new MERLOT themed map at OER Impact Map (http://oermap.org/).
