Stephen Carson from MIT has released some impressive statistics from their open educational resource website. In the year 2009 the site received:
- 15+ million visits
- 9+ million visitors
- 100+ million page views (not counting PDF views)
That is staggering traffic for an open educational resource website!! MIT has also reported receiving 1 million visits directed from the MIT community site (the mit.edu domain) since the launch. This seems to indicate that the MIT main sites are becoming major referrers to the MIT OER material. I think it is safe to say that MIT OCW has lended itself tremendously to themarketing and branding of MIT. Congratulations!
