DiscoverEd is an experimental project from ccLearn
which attempts to provide scalable search and discovery for educational
resources on the web. Metadata, including the license and subject
information available, are exposed in the result set. We are
particularly interested in open educational resources (OER)
and are collaborating with other OER projects to improve search and
discovery capabilities for OER, using DiscoverEd and other available
tools. Contact us if you are interested in this work.
DiscoverEd is a prototype intended to explore how structured data may be used to enhance the search experience; there are a number of known issues.
Read our white paper
that describes the rationale for and design of DiscoverEd, as well as
our thoughts regarding possible future enhancements that could make the
tool, or other search tools like it, even more compelling.
DiscoverEd is also being discussed among participants of the OER search and discovery community. You can also find slides on Slideshare about DiscoverEd. If you are aware of any related resources, please post them to the OpenEd community site, and we will cross-post them to this FAQ as we can."
