Starting today (or the recent past, if you are reading this post in the future), and extending throughout the summer, Saylor Academy will be running a short survey (only 1 required question) aimed at learning more about what the members of our community — students, teachers, and blog readers alike — think about the term “open.”

How to Participate

If you are on our email list:

If you have been part of Saylor Academy for some time already and have joined our mailing list, then you may have received an email invitation asking for your participation in this survey. If you have not received this email or perhaps deleted it (I too have hastily cleaned out my inbox from time to time) but would still like to participate, you can use the button further below to take the survey.

If you are quite new to Saylor Academy (having joined within the last two weeks or so) and you have also joined the mailing list, then you should expect to receive an email with the survey link soon (because the survey question relates to the use of Saylor materials, we wanted to give those of you new to the Saylor community some time to engage with the site and courses before having you respond on what “open” means to you).

Regardless, if you are anxious to participate now, you are more than welcome to do so. All we ask is that you limit yourself to one response (feel free to delete any email invitation you receive).
