To find something better

With edu-sharing, you provide your users with a clear portal with learning content and educational offers. Clear, editorial collections and a search engine make sure that finding is done. This leaves more time for the essentials: teaching.
The edu-sharing repository offers its users a one-field search as well as a configurable, advanced facet search function. Here are the fields of our easily customizable metadata catalogs as search criteria available. The search always remains performant - regardless of whether 10 or 10,000 catalog values ​​per criterion.
Using search options such as school type, subject, age group or subject, users will quickly find the perfect content for their course.

All sources in a search

The network offers a variety of valuable, free learning content. The search for it is cumbersome because the contents are often buried in their own databases and servers. edu-sharing helps you to make these treasures accessible to your users. Bundle external and internal sources of content and make them available in a convenient search. Benefit from interface technologies (Elixir, OAI-PMH ...) and metadata mapping capabilities, as well as our experience in integrating sources such as:

Quality? For sure!

edu-sharing offers its editors the perfect space for the cooperative management and quality assurance of their offer. Interfaces such as WebDAV and OAI-PMH facilitate the delivery of new content.
An important criterion for the findability of content is the provision of metadata. Unfortunately, entering this information is one of the least popular tasks in capturing content. That's why our open source e-learning repository offers features like configurable metadata inheritance.
Another challenge in providing free learning content is licensing. Again, edu-sharing supports its users. Our license editor allows uncomplicated use of the Creative Commons license system with automatically correct attribution in all connected systems.

Use everything everywhere

Thanks to the edu-sharing plug-in technology, the edu-sharing OER search can be called up in the material options of your learning environment and as a function of the text editor. Content such as videos, audio, and tools, such as Etherpad, are either linked to the course as a resource or embedded in the text.

Start faster and avoid pitfalls

The implementation of an OER offer is a complex task in which we would like to support you. Benefit from the experience of our partners so that their wishes become reality more quickly.
Our customer service includes strategy consulting, training, customization, hosting and support.

For this purpose groups and organizations (eg schools, circles), associated users and preconfigured rights can be automatically taken over from directory services.
