A world map of Open Educational Initiatives: Can the global OER community design and build it together? Susan D’Antoni

Rationale for an OER World Map • A decade of growth of OER initiatives worldwide • Potential value of an OER World Map – – – –

Make visible the geographic spread of OER initiatives Trace life cycles of initiatives over time Identify a global roster of OER experts Enable partnerships and collaboration

• A tool and resource – Awareness raising beyond the OER community – Communication/advocacy with policy and decision makers

– Inclusive community-building

Discussion in the international OER community • Consensus – Keep it simple = feasible and sustainable – Use Free and Open Source Software and international standards – Build the map collaboratively with light central promotion, coordination – and local data collection and quality checking – Avoid duplication of information and link in existing data

An open Request for Proposals • One approach under consideration for implementation – Start with a small focussed project to launch the mapping of the global OER landscape of institutional initiatives – Then build upon the infrastructure and database developed in a global collaborative effort
