Solution Mapping is a methodology that seeks to support joint learning by obtaining information and analyzing patterns. This collaborative component using open methodologies can be supported by platforms to centralize and deliver the content.
Examples depending on the application
Participatory and open science
Knowledge is a useful tool not only for people with technical skills to develop their work, but also to develop work models in which all interested parties are aware and participate; this implies the transformation of authority structures towards their democratization. 
An example of this is the work of participatory science. This refers to the involvement of the public in the practice of science. Although in many areas this practice is limited to the participation of volunteers in collecting relevant data in a study, the existence of open knowledge tools allow greater participation in governance processes to define what problems to solve and the best ways to do it. , with the support of people with research skills.
Books and educational materials
A major challenge in developing new solutions is communicating concepts to people new to the subject. Knowledge products of this type fulfill many of the requirements of open educational resources : the ability to reuse, retain, revise, remix, and redistribute materials; all this with the aim of transmitting knowledge in educational environments.
Una práctica muy común en el desarrollo internacional es la diseminación de tecnologías para su implementación en nuevos contextos. Este tipo de productos de conocimiento se enfoca en la entrega de conocimiento adecuado a equipos técnicos para resolver preguntas relacionadas al cómo construir o dar mantenimiento a soluciones en contextos de desarrollo.
