2015 OE Award Winners: Projects

Project awards aim to recognize efforts that support the production, use and/or promotion of OCW/OER in ways other than the creation and use of material resources.

2015 Project awards fall into two categories: 1) Creative Innovation, 2) Open Research.

CREATIVE INNOVATION AWARD recognizes outstanding innovations that bring a new approach to Open Education. Ideas or solutions presented as sites, courses or projects that substantially improve the discoverability, presentation, usability, accessibility or availability of course materials.

OPEN RESEARCH AWARD recognizes excellence in research studies about open education and/or related areas. Studies that help advance our understanding and demonstrate effectiveness related to challenges in discoverability, presentation, usability, accessibility or availability of OCW/OER.
 The OpenCourseWare Consortium is pleased to recognize these institutions and organizations for their efforts and contributions to free and open education.
