Over the next two months, SPARC will be working to collect information about student savings using the same methodology as 2013. We will unveil the findings at the 15th Annual Open Education Conference this October in Niagara Falls. The plan is simple. We are asking members of the community to report information on the total number of students (or more specifically, student enrollments) who have used OER in place of traditional textbooks over time. We will coallate information broken down by institution and academic year, and multiply it by a standardized per-student savings estimate. The goal is to collect enough data on OER use to add up to $1 billion in savings.
