A world map of Open Educational Resources initiatives

Commentary by Stephen Downes

Last fall the UNESCO open educational resources (OER) project hosted an online discussion to consider the feasibility of a global 'map' on open educational resources. This immediately suggested two interpretations: the first, and probably intended by the authors, would involve an actual geographical map, with OER projcets 'pinned' on the map; the second, and to my mind more useful, would have been a 'mapping' of OER initiatives, searchable and sortable across various dimensions. This paper is the summary of that discussion. You might enjoy the discussion just in order to read one of my own moments of clarity (p. 7): "In redundancy is reliability. In synchronization is strength. In distribution is durability. In structured representation is stability."
