ABSTRACT
The Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education (www.iskme.org) is working to develop ongoing mechanisms for knowledge sharing on open education initiatives worldwide, through research, field building, and innovations in web-based media. ISKME has been working with six projects over the past year to help create case studies and build capacity to track, analyze and share key developments in the creation, use and reuse of open educational resources (OER) within the projects themselves. The projects include:

CurriculumNet (Uganda)
Curriki (United States)
Free High School Science Texts (South Africa)
Mission 2007 Training Commons (India)
Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (United States)
Teachers' Domain (United States)

The findings from the case studies of the projects above have been used to support the development this OER Case Study Framework, which seeks to assist any open education project that wants to track, share, and advance their learnings and successes. A comparative analysis from these case studies will be available in fall 2008.
