Our mission

Our mission

We aim to map OER initiatives around the world to facilitate the expansion of knowledge and the exchange of information, experience and data between individuals and communities.

We believe that Open Education has the potential to enhance education for all, to foster democratic participation, sustainable development and social justice. Helping others to open and transform education, its institutions, practices and resources is what gets us going every morning.

Get Involved

Get involved

Find the work of others

Browse the map for information on services to find suitable OER which ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. Or find tools to create and share your one work. Find events and projects to increase your knowledge or search for a specific project in a certain geographic area, a research field, or an educational sector.

Make your own work visible

Share your own work as an open educator, researcher or policy maker and make your services, tools or events more visible or let others discover your project websites. Add information on people, organisations or networks to enable knowledge graphs. Others will be able to look you up and learn from what you have been working on.

Get an overview of the OER landscape

Collect data on specific geographic areas or subjects to facilitate your research or find arguments to support decision-making processes. Find policies from other institutions and get in touch with their facilitators.
