  • Portal, intranets

  • eLearning strategy and drive

  • University learning & teaching initiatives

  • reward and recognition


EdShare’s practical approach

  • EdShare supports access within the whole

  • institution, Schools, across groups and

  • disciplines

  • making resources visible

  • with a relaxed approach to adding more

  • detail:

    courses, tags, level, re-use

  • a citation of the item


EdShare look and feel

EdShare moves from the formality of the research repository to the look and feel of Web 2.0


Context of a School: Psychology

  • Blackboard (VLE)

  • PsyWeb (Intranet)

  • SUSSED (Portal)

  • Which others?

  • EdShare fits

    with these


Context of a Service: the Library

Gathering, managing and making visible:


Increasing visibility for re-use

Generic material:


Promoting specific content

Material which is freely accessible:

EduServ projects

Slideshare

Biomed Image Archive

HEAcademy resources

JORUM


Some assumptions and requirements

  • Institutional practice of re-use is for small, “unbundled” sections/assets/objects/activities

  • Teachers rarely finish materials for teaching

  • Lightweight, nimble and portable service

  • Simple workflow for adding content

  • Easy sharing and finding


Adding and describing content


Adding content

  • Add actual document/resource or web link

  • Items get a persistent URL

  • Owner gets the option to add descriptions and

  • tags

  • Owner can decide “visibility” of document

  • Users can also bookmark/describe for others

  • Resources will be automatically indexed by

  • Google etc.


What stage is EdShare at now?

  • EPrints software platform

  • .soton.ac.uk URL – institutional status

  • New lightweight interface

  • Intuitive and minimal description of

  • material required

  • Working with a range of practitioners to

  • use and develop EdShare

  • Spreading the word!
