Welcome all to the red carpet everyone, for the first unoffical OER awards! Which I just made up. So it’s very important.
So as part of our Triton Project we created Politics In Spires, with content created by The Universities of Oxford and Cambridge. Part of the Triton Project was to work on OER discovery and optimising the discover-ability of OER, and we implemented part of this via what we called “Dynamic Collections”.
So lets look at some stats / open an envelope!
European Politics and Society – http://politicsinspires.org/dynamic_collection/european-politics-and-society/
Plays : 770
Collections embedded : 62
International Relations – http://politicsinspires.org/dynamic_collection/international-relations/
Plays : 922
Comparative Government – http://politicsinspires.org/dynamic_collection/comparative-government/
Plays : 748
Plays : 1041
RSS Subscribers : 164
Activity stream : 197
Barack Obama – http://politicsinspires.org/dynamic_collection/barack-obama/
Plays : 313
Plays : 227
David Cameron – http://politicsinspires.org/dynamic_collection/david-cameron/
Plays : 207
Plays : 117
So the winner of most popular dynamic collection is “Political Theory”, which also wins on Best RSS and Best Activity Streams, but “European Politics and Society” wins the coveted “Collections Embedded” award. Speech! Speech!
However, as these are OER lists, and we record how often each link is visited (we have almost 4000 contenders), and a user has the scope to like a link. So *drum roll please*, which is our most popular OER!
Rights and justice in international relations from the Open University! With 13 visits and 1 like!
Congratulations all round!
