The problem

Open educational resources have been published by many higher education institutions around the world. They are released under licenses that typically allow download, copying and reuse of the content. However, once the content leaves the publisher's server it becomes very hard to find out who is using it, and what they are doing with it.

The Universities, funding bodies and individuals who invest time and effort in developing OER content need to find out more.


Track OER is a JISC and HEFCE-funded project to facilitate Web analytics for Open Educational Resources.

It is a rapid innovation project to demonstrate technical solutions, based around software like Piwik, Google Analytics and CaPRéT, the Creative Commons API and oEmbed.
