  • Outline
    • Glossary
    • An infrastructure for exchanging learning resources
      • Brief history

    • Learning Resource:

  • A Brief History of the LRE
    • ETB: Dublin Core, NNTP => LRE Thesaurus

    • FIRE: LOM, SQI Brokerage System => S 2 QL
    • CALIBRATE: LRE AP, SQI + OAI-PMH Brokerage System, S 2 QL => PLQL
    • MELT: Service-Oriented Architecture => >150,000 open resources + Metadata
    • ASPECT:  Much more to come 
  • By All Means: Collecting Metadata
    • (Federated) search: SQI, SRU
    • Harvesting: OAI-PMH
    • Publishing: SWORD, SPI
    • Mass upload: Excel sheets
  • By All Means: Exposing Learning Resources

      • Large choice of connection type (search, harvesting, push, etc.)
    • Searching the LRE
      • Fast and reliable
      • Large choice of access method (search, etc.)
    • But …
