Description

The Open Educational Resources Unit at Oregon State university has been using Google Data Studio as a visualization and data dashboard tool. In this presentation, we will share two projects where we have used Google Data Studio. The first project is a data dashboard for faculty authors to see how, where, and when their OER textbook is being viewed and downloaded. Each of our open textbooks on Pressbooks has a unique link that provides this information to faculty on demand. This project uses both Google Analytics and Data Studio. The second project is a data dashboard for tracking the no cost and low cost course sections at Oregon State. The data dashboard is being used to report HECC data and provide information to the colleges and institution about the number of low and no cost sections, the number of students impacted and the approximate cost avoidance. The project used data from the bookstore, the registrar, and Banner to create an interactive data dashboard. We will share why we decided to take on the projects, how we did it, and how the data dashboards are being used.
