At present there is a clear absence of technical solutions that would allow for education design and provision across technologies. Even in the case of supportive licensing for underlying open educational resources, and the access opportunity to educational communities, the disconnection of the respective technical solutions and environments has turned out so far to be a serious challenge. As a matter of fact current technological solutions are typically not designed or intended to allow for education across higher education institutions, nor to allow all type of learners to learn at any institution of their choice, nor to engage with students from such institutions, nor to obtain support from such institutions. Commercial approaches like Amazon for the retail sector or Sourceforge for developer community do provide some insights on how Open Education Ecosystems might be perceived. Amazon and Sourceforge both offer examples that bring together competing commercial enterprises within their environments, which in the traditional formal higher education domain does not exist. Thus there is the need to advance knowledge in such new forms of collaboration in the education sector and to contribute towards specifications that emerging Open Education Ecosystems would need to meet.
