Mapping the open education landscape

This post and a previous one from Martin Weller, along with two sites from Katy Jordan, go to support the argument that people working in different domains of open education do not talk to each other, and that they especially do not learn from the lessons of the past. I am not even remotely convinced by the evidence. Only 170 articles were collected on the topic (including a grand total of three by me, including one duplicate listing). The articles are very unevenly distributed over time; it's not at all surprising to see so few references to the early years when there are so few articles listed from those years. Finally, most of the work in open education takes place outside the domain of scholarly publication (the grouping simply reflects the different waves of academics who come to graze on the primary material and take credit for 'discovering' the concepts and ideas wthin).
