The movement for OER in Canada and the United States has been accelerating, with numerous institutions launching initiatives to support the creation, adoption, adaptation and awareness of OER. While there are a number of successful efforts to organize networks, communities, and consortia, many activities also happen organically without visibility outside their institution.

Recognizing the need to better track and share information about the efforts institutions have taken to advance OER, SPARC developed Connect OER. This presentation will provide attendees with an opportunity to learn more about the project as well as key findings from our first Annual Connect OER Report.
