    5. 5. MERLOT • A free and open peer reviewed collection of online teaching and learning materials and faculty-developed services contributed and used by an international education community. • A collection consists of tens of thousands of discipline- specific learning materials, learning exercises, and Content Builder web pages, together with associated comments, and personal collections, all intended to enhance the teaching and learning experience.
    6. 6. P2PU • Peer 2 Peer University. • A grassroots open education project that organizes learning outside of institutional walls and gives learners recognition for their achievements. • P2PU creates a model for lifelong learning alongside traditional formal higher education.

    7. 7. UntrikiWiki • “We can help you custom build the most effective wiki to connect co-workers with content, with which they can create, share and discuss documents, projects, and ideas. We believe in a tripartite solution to harmonizing this complex network: choosing the right technology, best-fit organizational practices, and instilling a complementary culture of informational exchange.” •
    8. 8. UntrikiWiki • Developed a MediaWiki extension to allow the use of, LRMI and arbitrary HTML markup in Wikitext. • HTML Extension • Very difficult to get MediaWiki approval for extension. • After project finished Mediawiki started supporting, but not arbitrary html tags. • Extension has been widely used but not necessarily for LRMI. • UntrikiWiki questionnaire LRMI Implementation Projects, #cetis14, 17-18 June 2014

    11. 11. gooru • “An open and collaborative online learning community. Gooru enables teachers and students to find standards- aligned, interactive learning materials that have been rated by fellow teachers, share those materials in the form of personalized custom collections, measure students’ engagement, comprehension, and progress, and contribute to an active community of teachers and students by sharing your collections and best practices.” LRMI Implementation Projects, #cetis14, 17-18 June 2014
    12. 12. gooru • Gooru serves as both a custom search engine, a playlist creation tool, and an aggregator. • 18 million resources in gooru catalogue. • 180,000 tagged to instructional standards such as the Common Core State Standards. • 1.5 million quiz questions. • 50,000 teacher and student created collections. • All resources tagged with open licences. • Non openly licensed resources are taken down if uploaded. LRMI Implementation Projects, #cetis14, 17-18 June 2014
    13. 13. gooru • 95% of catalogue tagged with LRMI. • Incorporated components of LRMI into the gooru metadata schema which borrows from a range of schema. • gooru metadata framework is used to disseminate catalog of indexed resources. • Backend metadata stored in a slightly different framework from LRMI. • gooru fields are mapped to LRMI fields. • Metadata stored in an SQL table but are transitioning to a no SQL framework this year. • gooru questionnaire LRMI Implementation Projects, #cetis14, 17-18 June 2014
    14. 14. Open Tapestry • A toolkit that enables teachers, instructors, professors, corporate trainers, students and learners to discover, adapt, and share learning resources. • The Open Tapestry toolkit allows instructors to develop course materials and organise content into categories, or Tapestries, to enhance learners' experiences.
    15. 15. Open Tapestry • Open Tapestry harvests metadata and allows users to build collections from the content. • Uses OAI harvesters, web crawlers, RSS harvesters • Custom platform built on ruby on rails. • Platforms ability to detect open licences based on Pat Lockley’s Open Attribute. • c. 1 million resources. • Try to encourage use of open content but also allow people to create private instances. LRMI Implementation Projects, #cetis14, 17-18 June 2014
    16. 16. Open Tapestry • Ingests and preserves all kinds of metadata including LRMI. • Also allows users to create additional metadata. • Provides fields for all LRMI elements but users tend not to fill it in. • System keeps track of the originator of the metadata, important for derivative works to keep track of metadata genealogies, to know who is asserting claims. • Also implements IMS LTI to integrate Open Tapestry with LMS.
