This is the post in which I propose that I have completed the requirements for the Open Ed Researcher Badge. In accordance with the requirements I am linking the posts that were required to earn this badge.
First, I affirm that I carefully read and viewed all of the materials provided for the topics Open Source, OpenCourseWare, and Open Educational Resources.
Secondly, I am providing the links to my previous blog posts about these three topics with the research materials that I found and reported.
Research Studies for Open Topics
Overall I found the research interesting and I learned a great deal about current issues in each of these three topic areas. The research studies I have proposed may be redundant with existing research but a more thorough literature review would reveal that if I were actually pursuing these studies as part of my program.
