Securing information from the project “Information service Open Educational Resources”

Information resources, materials and technical structures are made sustainable and stored for the project "Information service Open Educational Resources (OERinfo)" – subject to the German Education Server.

Project Description

The project "Information service Open Educational Resources (OERinfo)" ran from 2016 to 2020 and focused on the creation of an online platform which provides comprehensive information on the topic of OER to the public at large and specific target groups. The current state of knowledge is presented to practitioners, information is collected regarding best-practice examples and the diversity of existing initiatives is reflected. In this regard, the information service positioned itself as an interface between agents (at the federal and state level, research and infrastructure institutions) on the one hand and civil society stakeholders on the other hand (OER community in the areas of school education, universities, continuing education). The current project aims at retaining OERinfo as a central information platform for the OER discourse in Germany. Developments at the political level will be documented (OER policies of the states, OER strategy of the federal government, possibly funding lines). With regard to future developments of OER infrastructures, the technical platform and relevant content are stored.

Project Objectives

  • retaining OERinfo as a central information platform
