O n behalf of the entire OpenLearning17 community, especially the Steering Committee of which she was a part, we give our sincere thanks to Dr. Laura Gogia for her splendid work on the assessment below. Many thanks as well to Dr. Tim Merrill, who was also helpful in preparing the report.

As you read through this report, we hope you will agree that the experiment was worth the effort involved, and that we did indeed realize many, if not most of the outcomes we sought in our initial framework for the project. Dr. Gogia’s work demonstrates areas in which another iteration might improve on these outcomes, and suggests ways in which new outcomes may now be imagined. Such emergent possibilities are, of course, one of the primary meta-outcomes these experiments seek.
