The OER World Map is an ambitious project which records and shares data about OER activity and actors worldwide. The presentation gives an overview of the state of platform, community, and business model development within the project and outlines next steps. The OER World Map provides growing value for its users. It takes an integrated approach which combines top-down and bottom-up elements in order to release the full potential of the platform. Throughout 2017 our work has concentrated on the question how the platform can support the development of a regional OER community in one country. Basic elements of the model developed in Germany are an OER country map and reports, which combine narratives with underlying primary data. Data collection is done by an editorial office in cooperation with the local community. The developed model can be used as a reference point for the implementation of the platform in other countries. In order to prepare breakthrough on a global scale, and the implementation of more country maps, we will start a strategic partnership programme and increase social networking functionality of the platform.
