Where is the open education community?

The word open is widely used in education contexts to prefix many different activities:
open source, open standards, open practice, open resources, open data etc..
The Open Education special interest group is looking to increase awareness of the many shades of open education activities and communities that exist and we have created this visualisation to help join those dots:

Thanks for taking the time to add a comment. Our padlet board visualising the open communities has grown as you can see here https://padlet.com/Debbaff/joiningtheopendots and we are holding a webinar to talk about our shared values, details here https://altc.alt.ac.uk/oesig/2017/07/10/open-what-do-we-value/ You are right that open practice helps us to connect across national borders and that is so important for learning.

Dear community,

Sometimes there are many proffesors that are in his owns offices without enough time or oportunities to conect to the other researchers, but that in his daily routine improve in many open activities and resources whou offert to the open community.
I agree with you about the importantce to share and extend the visibility of the open practice.
I consider the necesity to showing this non-regular open activities, but who create a conscienc about the future open education without national borders.

Congratulations for the effort and hard work
