There has been a lot of development work taking place – including a new brand identity and UI overhaul for the OER World Map (which has a great new landing page).  The refresh was launched at OER18: Open to All – 9th Annual Conference for Open Education Research, Practice and Policy which took place in Bristol, UK between the 18-19th April.  The event was used to assess the use of the map as a tool for collecting and visualising data about conference attendance and activity.

Und zwar die Ergebnisse hier mal nicht im Sinne von produzierten Bildungsmaterialien oder neu hinzugewonnenen Mitstreitern in Sachen OER, sondern im Hinblick auf das Projekt selbst: Continue reading

Identifying Lighthouses

The Ljubjlana Action Plan highlights the need to identify and share models of good practice, which have proven to be sustainable ways to organize the production, adoption, sharing and use of Open Educational Resources.
