We recently described the OER World Map as a Š—“project in its adolescenceŠ— [1], meaning that after two years of development it has reached a state, in which it starts to provide user value without having achieve full maturity yet.



One indicator of the growing acceptance of the platform is the increasing number of cooperations with other initiatives. The presentation will provide an update on several activities, which we will drive forward in 2017:



1) OERInfo: Germany started its first major OER program [2] at the end of 2016. As part of program, OER World Map participates in the generation of the Š—“Informationsstelle OERŠ—, a central information website on OER. One outcome will be a Š—“Country Map InterfaceŠ—, which shifts the focus of the platform to the national community. After successful implementation, we will provide this functionality for other countries as well.



2) Lighthouses: In preparation to UNESCO`s second OER World Congress we are planning to implement a Š—“lighthouse functionŠ— [3], which will allow users to like initiatives, which have proven to provide sustainable value. By doing so it will be possible to identify good practise examples, which can serve as role models for countries or institutions new to OER.



3) Cooperation with OEC: One of our current projects partnering the Open Education Consortium is to use the OER World Map as a tool to support ongoing OEC activity like the Year of Open, a CCCOER members map and Open Education Week. During the course of the project, automatic data import as well as the display of World Map elements in OEC websites will be refined and extended.



The presentation will also give an overview of the roadmap of its way to Š—“grow upŠ— in the near future!
