OER World Map
1st December 2016 - 30th November 2018
For more than a decade the creation and use of Open Educational Resources (OER) has been increasing around the globe. The OER World Map collects and visualizes data on the growing number of actors and activities in the field of open education worldwide. The goal is to accelerate the evolution of the global OER ecosystem by providing a comprehensive and responsive picture of the OER movement. The information provided can be used for a wide range of purposes, including:
- connecting actors with each other facilitating co-operation and sharing of resources and knowledge
- providing qualified lists of repositories and other OER services to help teachers and learners find educational resources relevant to them
- supporting policy makers in taking and defending strategic decisions by providing meaningful statistics and overviews of the open education movement and its associated impact.
The OER World Map project is led by Hochschulbibliothekszentrum des Landes Nordrhein-Westfalen (hbz) and the project consortium includes graphthinking GmbH with The Open University providing a lead on research and evaluation.
