Hi Martin,

Thanks for this as always.

This is an area that it is quite intriguing as the rewards for a "social networking hit" can be enormous ...

We had a set of material that we recently uploaded about stress/depression - audio talks ( CC)  and videos ( CC I think ).

 A single mention in a network of interested group of people on "stumbled upon" ( a service we know little about) - resulted in 20,000 hits on one video in a seven day period before xmas..

We only realised this was happening through a spike in our Google Analytics 

Peter

Hi all,

Here's the latest post from the OER Visualisation Project http://mashe.hawksey.info/2012/01/how-is-oer-being-shared/

In this post I thought it would be interesting to look for data about how OER resources are being socially shared. The technique I used was to use Google Refine to get share counts of a list of OER resources from a range of networks using Yahel Carmonís Shared Count API. Easily replicable if you want to try.

From a small sample I didn't detect much social share activity and I was wondering if this was the norm? Also left me wondering if achieving social sharing was a target for other repositories?

One final thing I did was look at the #ukoer hashtag archive to try and spot any patterns in the links being shared. Haven't come to any concrete conclusions yet but congratulations to Oxford University Computing Services for their Open Advent Calendar which was the most shared link in #ukoer ;)

Martin
