Google Trends. Open Educational Resources

Open Educational Resources

How popular is the use of Open Educational Resources?

For a first approximation to this problem we used Google Trends. This resource makes it easier to follow the trends in Google search for  a particular Term.

To do this we use two Search Terms:

  • Open Educational Resources

and the similar term in Spanish:

  • Recursos Educativos Abiertos

The chart below shows the trend:

It is observed that the Search Term: Open Educational Resources starts to appear in 2007, but it is not until 2011 that the similar term in Spanish begins to appear.

The average index of the term in English is 38/100  and about about 12 times less (3) for  ”Recursos Educativos Abiertos”

These preliminary results confirm something we already knew. the use of open educational resources is just starting.
