We welcome suggestions for evidence of OER Impact and examples of OER Policy.  You are also encouraged to add your OER project to the map!

Some tips for use:

  • First, select the type of data you will add – evidence, policy or project
  • ‘Citation’ should be either a URL or an academic reference
  • The body of the evidence entry works like a ‘WSYIWYG ‘ editor
  • OER Impact Map supports the use of WordPress shortcodes to embed multimedia content (YouTube, SlideShare, Embedded Tweets, etc.)
  • Paste in an address and hit ‘Geocode’ to generate a map reference
  • Select a country
  • Submit for review

Adding Evidence:

  • Use the hypothesis list to work out where evidence fits or mark it ‘Unassigned’
  • Be sure to mark evidence as positive (for the hypothesis) or negative (against the hypothesis) and identify the sector the evidence comes from

Adding Projects:

  • If adding a project, include some text from the project website (or Wikipedia) and a homepage link

Adding Policies

  • If adding a policy be sure to select the scope (Local (Institutional)/Regional/National/International) and the relevant education sectors – link back to the policy and add a brief summary or paste in relevant sections

If you’d like to add multiple entries you might find our bookmarklet tool useful.
