The OER World Map is back online

The OER World Map is now online again. It is being promoted today as part of the kick-off conference of the series “OER at a glance: Promoting – Networking – Developing”at which, among other things, the projects of the OE_COM funding guideline will be welcomed. The OER World Map is the place on the internet where everyone can expand their knowledge of OER initiatives, share information and experiences and collect data.

Open source software and the involvement of the community

As part of our ongoing development, we pursue an open development process that allows the entire program code to be publicly accessible on GitLab. This not only ensures transparency, but also enables all interested parties to participate in the development process. In addition, only software components that meet the criteria of free software are used.

The platform developed by the University Library Centre of North Rhine-Westphalia (hbz) and operated until 2022 served as the starting point and requires extensive adaptations, modernizations and extensions. Thanks to the consistent open source approach and close cooperation with the community, important foundations could already be laid in the initial phase.
