As an element in the empirical strand of the CERI study on Open Educational Resources the site visits forms an important part of the project. The purpose of the site visits is to complement two web based questionnaires which were sent to institutions and individual faculty members by giving deeper insights into how and why institutions engage themselves in the use, production and sharing of Open Educational Resources.
The visits have been carried out both by CERI staff and external experts and the reports will form an important part of the final findings that will be published during the first half of 2007.
Before finalising these reports all universities have been contacted for comments and corrections. The OECD accepts full responsibility for the content in these reports as there may still be some misunderstandings or mistakes in the texts.
