For teachers

Features that are particularly interesting for teachers:

Organize learning materials in collections, use them in private or share with others

Create and structure your own collections - sort materials to facilitate the retrieval of learning materials. You can crate collections just for yourself, with colleagues or in an open community. Decide who has which permission for your collection.

Shared workspaces

In addition to your own workspaces, you can also work in group folders with colleagues or in workgroups. Store, organize, share and publish materials. The workspaces are set up automatically according to your organizational structure.

Legally compliant use of materials in connected LMS and tools

Plug-ins for learning platforms and tools make edu-sharing features, such as search and collections, available to their users. 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 are displayed with the correct license information and metadata from the repository.

For editors

Features that are particularly interesting for editorial teams:

Workflow support

edu-sharing supports the collaboration in authoring teams and quality assurance in editorial departments or with peers. You can assign a "workflow step" and a "user in charge" to objects. Every change is recorded in the workflow history. The final status "tested" can be used as a seal of quality.

My to-dos

Each user can access a list containing all materials he is in charge of - as part of a workflow. The communication between participants takes place via comments stored for each object. After completing the task, the person responsible can change the status and forward the object to the next user responsible.

Architecture & Integration

Simple, stable and safe

Powerful, scalable technologies with standardized interfaces (eg REST, OAI-PMH, SOAP) make sure edu-sharing can grow with your requirements. We picked Alfresco as the base system for the repository because of its scalability, reliability, deployment in large professional user circles, service provider network, customizability and more. The rendering service uses a scalable PHP stack. Content sources, e-learning systems and authoring tools are connected via standardized interfaces (API, OAI-PMH, LTI, etc.).
