DiscoverEd

DiscoverEd
DiscoverEd is a search prototype developed by Creative Commons to explore metadata enhanced search, specifically for OER. While most search engines rely solely on algorithmic analyses of resources, DiscoverEd can incorporate data provided by the resource publisher or curator. DiscoverEd supports several common metadata formats, including OAI-PMH and RDFa. The use of these formats allows otherwise unrelated educational projects,legal, and repositories to express facts about their resources in the a way that tools (like DiscoverEd) can use for purposes like search and discovery. DiscoverEd is a project that allows us to explore ways to improve search for OER, and simultaneously demonstrate the utility of structured data. DiscoverEd is built on Nutch.

Même si ceux-ci sont généralement peu utilisés par la majorité des acheteurs d'ebooks, le site présenterait l'avantage de trouver rapidement tout fichier PDF généralement peu disponible sur les moteurs généralisés, que ces derniers ont tendance à ignorer. La société spécialisée dans les moteurs de recherche, RteamkZ, et le propriétaire du nouveau site web de moteur de recherche pour PDF, Timur Karipov, viennent d'annoncer dans un communiqué de presse le lancement de PDF SB. Le site PDF SB ne se concentre que sur un type d'ebook : les PDF. Le fichier PDF permet à beaucoup de contenus non-commerciaux d'être mis en ligne, et ne sont alors bien souvent pas disponibles en un autre format. Beaucoup de plates-formes ne prennent pas en compte ce genre de documents (bien souvent des manuels, ou des conférences) qui ne sont pas mis en vente : c'est le cas du site Inkmesh, par exemple, nous explique Nate Hoffelder.

Free Audio Books, eBooks and Textbooks Free PDF Search Engine Open Course Frameworks: Lowering the Barriers to OER Adoption I’ve been fairly quiet recently about Lumen Learning, the “RedHat for OER” I founded earlier this year with Kim Thanos. Lumen (for short) is where I’m spending my Shuttleworth Fellowship time, with the goal of drastically increasing the use of OER in formal educational settings in order to lower the cost and improve the quality of education. Today Lumen released its first six Open Course Frameworks. Open Course Frameworks are an idea I am very excited about, because they greatly simplify the process of adopting OER for the average teacher or institution. Open Course Frameworks are:
