What is edu-sharing?
edu-sharing is a self-hosted open-source framework for education. It facilitates the management and provision of documents, metadata and applications in learning and authoring systems such as Moodle, ILIAS and OPAL.
edu-sharing can be used in several ways:
- as a cloud based file-manager or as an e-learning repository for learning management systems
- as an (OER) search engine for media and learning content with functionalities for editorials
- as a secure cloud solution for shared e-learning infrastructures
This versatility is made possible by the flexibility of the edu-sharing components.
