  3. 3. DELTA overview <ul><li>Originated: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To meet the need of allowing practitioners to share case-studies </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Increase the awareness of pedagogical theory associated with case-studies </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Grow-context around resources </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Evolving into: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Distributed resource-sharing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Multiple resource types </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Extensible ontology-based search, ‘social software’ </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Not a resource repository per se. </li></ul><ul><li>More than a repository: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Provides means of describing and pointing to resources located in repositories located elsewhere. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Resources classified by pedagogical approach associated with them </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ability to search for particular resources and related resources. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Resource review mechanism to allow resources to grow in context. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Software includes </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Delta Web service </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Delta Web application </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>OAI-PMH meta-data harvesting tool </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ontologies tool </li></ul></ul>

  8. 8. A toolkit that will maintain individuals personal profiles and will support the social networks and relationships that exist between users. <ul><li>Achieved by using the Friend-Of-A-Friend (FOAF) vocabulary: </li></ul><ul><li>People & resources described using the Resource Description Framework (RDF) </li></ul><ul><li>Users will define their social networks and personal information spaces </li></ul>e-Profile

  13. 13. Future Plans: sharing desktop resources within communities
  14. 14. Conclusion <ul><li>ResourceBrowser demonstrates the combination of knowledge sharing and social networking tools </li></ul><ul><li>We have demonstrated it with Delta (as a resource repository) </li></ul><ul><li>No reason why it could not be linked with other (multiple) repository services eg. Jorum </li></ul><ul><li>Could be linked with other social networking tools eg. Elgg </li></ul><ul><li>A JISC knowledge sharing tool? </li></ul>
