The more recent interpretation of open education is related to open education resources (OER), open education practice (OEP), and open access publishing. Although related to the original, distance education based interpretation, there is a distinct community around these areas. The inception of the OER movement can be used as the basis for open education movement, which date sit back to 2001. Although still relatively young, this is a sufficient timeframe for different sub-communities to develop with a range of priorities and interests. Using a content analysis of the OER Knowledge Cloud repository, this presentation will examine the emerging sub-cultures within open education practice. Ten types of research article are identified and these represent different approaches and issues for the groups involved.

A interpretação mais recente da Educação Aberta (EA) abrange Recursos Educacionais Abertos (REA), Práticas Educacionais Abertas (PEA) e Publicação em Acesso Aberto. Ainda que essa interpretação esteja relacionada à concepção original vinculada à Educação a Distância (EaD), há comunidades distintas ligadas a essas áreas. O advento do movimento REA, que data de 2001, pode ser visto como a base do movimento da EA. Apesar desse movimento ser relativamente recente, já decorreu tempo suficiente para a organização de diferentes subcomunidades em torno de uma gama de prioridades e interesses distintos. Partindo de uma análise de conteúdo da produção indexada no repositório OER Knowledge Cloud (Nuvem de Conhecimento REA), este artigo examina as subculturas emergentes em termos de práticas da EA. Identificam-se 10 tipos de artigos de pesquisa que representam diferentes abordagens e questões para os grupos envolvidos.
