  2. 2. Outline <ul><li>Glossary </li></ul><ul><li>An infrastructure for exchanging learning resources </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A Brief History </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Finding repositories </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Collecting metadata </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Exposing learning resources </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Inside the dark cloud </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Metadata management </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Indexation </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Conclusion: Getting Connected </li></ul>
  3. 3. Glossary <ul><li>Learning Resource: </li></ul><ul><li>Anything digital used for learning and/or teaching </li></ul><ul><li>Learning Resource Metadata: </li></ul><ul><li>Machine-readable description of learning resources </li></ul><ul><li>Learning Resource Repository: </li></ul><ul><li>Software system for managing learning resources and their metadata </li></ul>
  4. 4. Learning Resource Exchange <ul><li>An infrastructure for </li></ul><ul><li>Federating applications that provide learning resources (e.g.,  learning resource repositories, authoring tools) </li></ul><ul><li>Offering a seamless access to these resources to educational applications that consume them (e.g., educational portals, VLEs) </li></ul>
  5. 6. A Brief History of the LRE <ul><li>ETB: Dublin Core, NNTP => LRE Thesaurus </li></ul><ul><li>CELEBRATE: LOM, Brokerage System (JMS + WS) => Simple Query Interface (SQI) + LRE Application Profile (LRE AP) </li></ul><ul><li>FIRE: LOM, SQI Brokerage System => S 2 QL </li></ul><ul><li>CALIBRATE: LRE AP, SQI + OAI-PMH Brokerage System, S 2 QL => PLQL </li></ul><ul><li>MELT: Service-Oriented Architecture => >150,000 open resources + Metadata </li></ul><ul><li>ASPECT:  Much more to come  </li></ul>
  6. 7. Finding Repositories
  7. 8. Collecting Metadata <ul><li>(Federated) search: SQI, SRU </li></ul><ul><li>Harvesting: OAI-PMH </li></ul><ul><li>Publishing: SWORD, SPI </li></ul><ul><li>Mass upload: Excel sheets </li></ul>
  8. 9. Exposing Learning Resources <ul><li>Search: SQI, SRU </li></ul><ul><li>Harvesting: OAI-PMH </li></ul><ul><li>Index pushing </li></ul><ul><li>Syndication: Atom/RSS </li></ul>

  21. 23. Metadata Indexation
  22. 24. Conclusion: Getting Connected <ul><li>Today, connecting a repository to the LRE </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A matter of days </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Large choice of connection type (search, harvesting, push, etc.) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Today, searching the LRE </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Fast and reliable </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Large choice of access method (search, etc.) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Today, the LRE keeps on advancing the state of the art in infrastructure for learning resource discovery and exchange </li></ul>
