In addition to the OEPS community, you can join a community which is discovering and exploring the relevance of open educational practices for its needs or you can create a new community on this site if you cannot find one which suits your purposes.  Use the Find a Community option or browse the list of communities below.  We strongly suggest you join an existing community first before starting up a new one.

Communities can share links to useful resources, discuss open educational practices in a community forum hosted elsewhere which can be embedded in the community space on this site, blog about their emerging or established open educational practices, and  embed a relevant twitter feed.  

Further development to the community facility will come in the next few months – if you can suggest a feature that you would like for communities, please email
