Use materials in connected LMS and tools with legal certainty

Plug-ins for learning platforms and tools make edu-sharing features, such as search and collections, widely available to their users. In this way, materials and tools accessed via edu-sharing can be found, embedded and used in all connected learning management systems and e-learning tools. Inserted materials directly bring with them the correct license information and metadata from the repository.

Administration content in the "safe"

The safe is an additional secured area with a second password especially for materials that require protection. The access can be controlled via user roles or rights, so that, for example, only teachers are allowed in the safe. If you are inactive in the safe for a few minutes, you will be automatically logged out.

Curriculum collections

With editorially maintained collections, curricula are also displayed and enriched with materials. Public or protected syllabi can be browsed by topics and competences.

Search engine: search once - find it everywhere

We offer a high-performance search engine that uses all of its internal file stores, libraries and even external sources (eg YouTube, German Digital Library, Pixabay, etc.) or imported materials (eg from Elixir, ZUM-Wiki, Serlo, FWU, etc.). ) searches. Reusable found materials can be sorted into collections, imported into workspaces, or used in plugged-in LMS.

Rendering Service

Display learning content only for authorized users in the format that can be played on their device - that's what the edu-sharing rendering service does. It automatically supplements metadata or legally prescribed information, such as author and license. So media in all affiliated learning platforms, Wikis u.a. Systems displayed correctly. Existing conversion modules for audio, video, image, SCORM, QTI tests or Moodle courses can be supplemented by your own specialist formats.

App for iOS & Android

The edu-sharing app makes it easy to collect and share learning content when you're on the go. Own photos can be uploaded directly into the workspaces and sorted into collections. The collection of interesting web links is fast and easy.

For editors

Features that are particularly interesting for editorial teams:

Workflow support

edu-sharing supports collaboration in authoring teams and quality assurance in editorial departments or peers. The object is assigned the next workflow step and responsible. This way, the entire processing history is documented on the object. The final status "tested" can be used as a seal of quality.

My to-dos

The user sees in a clear list all the materials for which he is responsible next. The communication between participants takes place via comments directly on the object. After completing the task, the person responsible can change the status and forward the object to the next party.

For authors

Features that are especially interesting for authors:

Working together on online documents

Through our connector to OnlyOffice, users can work online on materials (text documents, spreadsheets and presentations) - even at the same time. Changes made by a user to the document are also directly visible to contributors. The materials are stored and versioned in the own workspace. From here the documents with the required permissions can be released.

Metadata support

  • educational metadata
    (e.g. education, type of school, subject, etc.)
  • Inheritance of metadata on materials in folders and collections
  • configurable, flexible metadata sets
    (e.g. by field or target group)
  • Support by LOM, Dublin Core, import / mapping by LOM, EAF, ELIXIER
  • customizable metadata import and mapping functions
  • metadata generation and metadata collection from the usage, generation of thumbnails

For operators

Features that are particularly interesting for employees of e-learning services and data centers:


Architecture & Integration

Simple, stable and safe

Powerful, scalable technologies with standardized interfaces (eg REST, OAI-PMH, SOAP) enable large entities, for example at the state level. Criteria for selecting Alfresco for the repository (Java technologies) were scalability, reliability, deployment in large professional user circles, service provider network, customizability and more. Criteria. The rendering service follows with its proven, cluster-enabled PHP stack the most widely used e-learning systems (Moodle, Mediawiki). Content sources, content-using e-learning systems and authoring tools are connected via standardized interfaces (API, OAI-PMH, LTI, etc.).
