JISC and the University of Oxford are running a one-day meeting on 20th May 2011, Digital Impacts: How to Measure and Understand the Usage and Impact of Digital Content

“The question of how we can measure and understand the usage and impact of digital content within the education sector is becoming increasingly important. Substantial investment goes into the creation of digital resources for research, teaching and learning and, in the current economic climate, both content creators, publishers as well as funding bodies are being asked to provide evidence of the value of the resources they’ve invested in. But how do we go about defining value and impact? Which metrics should we adopt to understand usage? When is a digital resource a well used resource?”
