In 2008, fourteen top universities in Taiwan established Taiwan Open Courseware Consortium (renamed as Open Course Consortium, abbreviated TOCC, in 2014) to create a common platform for sharing and promoting open courseware. TOCC is intended to encourage and foster its member universities to create more open resources for learning through the online platforms via TOCC as the portal. During the past few years, under the promotion by its member universities, millions of open courseware have been created in either OCW or MOOCs format. Learners can now study anywhere anytime as the courseware has also greatly lowered the barrier of study. However, massive volumes of courseware also confuse learners in a way they have to spend more time surfing around the courseware they already learned and may not still fully understand what will be given in the course even syllabus and introduction are given for each course. To provide a more friendly guidance for learners to quickly manage and locate the exact courseware of interest, TOCC encourages the twenty-two university members and two high school members to make a course map for each produced open courseware. Currently, we have several course maps designed for high school students and college freshmen in Taiwan. With such guided maps, learners can now select among smaller units, combine them and create their own courses. More detail results will be given in the final poster.
