Technologist, Integrated Learner Support Services, Carnegie College.
  4. 4. Sharing Resources Two main ways to share: • Manual – uploading files & adding links. Both types are tagged and searched the same way! • Bulk Upload Methods – what we offer now, and what’s coming.
  5. 5. Sharing Resources - Manual Manual – Uploading Files & Adding Links • You can upload your files and packages into Jorum, including: • Individual files of all types; • Zip files containing any number of files; • Standard packages with metadata (SCORM and IMS), OR • You can put links to externally hosted content in Jorum • You can add metadata and licences during upload
  6. 6. Sharing Resources – Bulk Upload Methods Bulk Upload Methods – we currently offer: • Spreadsheet / CSV template • We give you the template, you add the metadata and links, and give it back to us to ingest. • There is a way to ingest packages in bulk this way too. • RSS Feed • We have offered ingest of static RSS Feeds in the past- they don’t support great discoverability within Jorum as each feed is treated as a single resource. • We are no longer supporting this for ingest from next year.
  7. 7. Sharing Resources – Bulk Upload Methods Bulk Upload Methods – what’s coming next year: • SWORD ingest • Standard protocol for ingesting files and packages along with their metadata. • There will be tools developed for use with this protocol. • Accepts IMS and SCORM Packages, zip files, any other filetypes, plus we hope to support METS packages later. • OAI-PMH • Standard protocol for ingesting metadata and links from other repositories. • We’re testing this now – let us know if you offer a feed.
  8. 8. Resource Metadata Metadata – what is it good for? • Discovery: • You want people to find your resources. • You want to be able to find your resources again yourself! • Measuring success • Jorum will soon offer easy-to-generate, easy-to-view and easy- to-share stats about usage of resources. • To get access stats in meaningful ways, you need to be able to gather them in meaningful ways, e.g.: • Stats on downloads of all resources in your JISC Programme? You need them all tagged with, e.g. “ukoer” • Data on the geographical origin of views of your institution’s resources? You need them all tagged with your institution’s name.
