ICPSR launches Measures of Effective Teaching web site

Some of my colleagues, including ICPSR Director George Alter, gave a demo of one of our newest Web sites and collections at the American Educational Research Association 2013 annual meeting on Sunday.

My team has built the video portal portion of the system.  The portal enables a researcher to play a list of videos that s/he has selected to view based on an analysis of the associated quantitative data and tagging data.  Access to the video and datasets is restricted and requires one to complete a data use agreement via ICPSR's web-based request system.

We're grateful for the support we've received from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to make all of this possible.

  1. Great to see this go live. Don't think I saw anything in the University Record about it. How are you promoting it?

  2. Hi, Sean. I suspect the team is spending most of the promotion effort outside U-M. Because we serve all of higher ed (plus some government agencies and non-educational non-profits) we don't tend to spend much time on spreading messages within the local U-M environment.
