Unattributed, Link Affiliates, Apr 09, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Position paper from Link Affiliates on standards for the ADL Conference next week. Link Affiliates "is a group working on promoting and facilitating the adoption of standards in e-learning and e-research in Australia." Repositories have to keep asking themselves, they argue, 'Why not Google?' They continue, "In e-Learning, the compelling case for repositories is made by a combination of the following, and repositories should be ensuring that they do a visibly better job than Google search." But that's not enough. "Users don't just expect the repository to feel like Google (or eBay, or increasingly Wikipedia); they expect it to be accessible to Google (and Wikipedia)."
