The aim of this paper is to overview the ways in which knowledge mapping can be used to foster open sensemaking communities. First, we introduce the OpenLearn project, launched by the UK Open University. It is a large scale project that makes a selection of higher education learning resources freely available on the internet. OpenLearn integrates three knowledge media technologies: Compendium, Flashmeeting and MSG. Then, we analyse some examples which show how knowledge mapping techniques have been used to foster the open learning Community of Portuguese Language Countries CPLC by mapping knowledge, educational resources and virtual interactions. This study draws on multiple data sources: discussion forum, Compendium maps and FlashMeeting web videoconference. Through qualitative analysis, we examine the value of knowledge mapping as a mediating tool for sense making. The findings suggest that knowledge maps can be applied to promote collaborative learning and critical thinking.
