Mapping OER in the Global South

  1. 1. OER World Map
  2. 2. Jan Adrian Philipp Felix RobJohannes Ben The Team
  3. 3. Why map OER? ● No record of activity by country or local area ● No central register of expertise and/or OER services ● Hard to find OER for local languages/standards ● Encourage collaboration and awareness ● Enable reuse of educational materials ● Support advocacy and policymaking ● Improve communication between different stakeholders ● Mapping provides a universal reference framework
  4. 4. History of the project ● International OER community convened by UNESCO International Institute for Education Planning in 2006 ● Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) first attempted to map OER in 2005 ● D’Antoni mapping discussion exercise (900 people), November 2012 ● Other maps: OLnet Evidence Hub, OER Impact Map, POERUP, CORE Open Access Repository Map ● Hewlett funded Phase 1 prototypes: hbz, ISKME, MIRA ● Phase 2 funding awarded November 2014
  5. 5. What is OER World Map? ● Project funded by The Hewlett Foundation ● Partners: North Rhine-Westphalian Library Service Centre (hbz), graphthinking GmbH, The Open University (UK), buschfeld.com ● A way for the OER community to develop & share data on itself ● Free and open source software, linked open data (LOD) + API ● OER Data Hub uses open data services to power statistics module for fast, flexible data import/export ● Mapping as primary form of visualization ● Facilitating self-organisation of the OER movement
  6. 6. Evolution of the Project Vision I (2012) "The OER World Map will illuminate the scope and nature of the global OER movement and act as a point of entry for a range of users. Its visualisation will serve to identify OER initiatives and OER people worldwide to facilitate sharing resources and connecting people. Built in collaboration, it will engage contributors and users as ‘co-owners’ to promote comprehensiveness and sustainability."
  7. 7. Evolution of the Project Vision II (2014) "The OER Data Hub is a platform which collects and publishes openly into the web data by, about and for the OER community. The OER World Map is the first out of many applications build on top of the OER Data Hub, which visualizes the data in the form of a geographical map and serves as a symbol of the project.”
  8. 8. Progress so far… Project Services ● email, newsletter, landing page ● technology stack Design ● user interface, responsive web design, accessibility Events ● Hewlett Grantees Meeting (San Francisco, USA) ● OER15 (Cardiff, UK) ● ROER4D Workshop ● OE Global (Banff, Canada)
