Open educational resources (OER) have recently emerged as an answer to the need for open and reusable educational material, freely available online. Educational institutions, private organisations, as well as individual learners and educators have embraced the OER initiative. Bringing these stakeholders together and supporting them in collaboratively adapting OER is critical for the success of this movement. This paper describes a social networking approach for supporting the adaptation of OER through tools and services that facilitate social interactions and collaboration.
