Monday is gala day in Calgary as Alexandria, a digital content repository, is launched by Netera and BELLE. In the brochure I saw (not available online), "Alexandria is a prototype for Canada's national repository of online educational material." Not exactly; it's more like one view of what it could be. This link is to the current version of Alexandria (almost impossible to Google, probably because of the similarly named and earlier Alexandria project at UCSB, the much earlier one in Egypt, and the fact that Learning Circuits is located in Alexandria, Virginia (heh). The current version serves essentially as a facade for CAREO, an Alberta based learning object repository. Perhaps something more will be unveiled at the ceremony.
