Remembering CAREO

Commentary by Stephen Downes

D'arcy Norman reports that CAREO - the Campus Alberta Repository of Educational Objects - is being mothballed. "CAREO was important, back in 2001-2004, as a prototype. As a sandbox for trying out some of these concepts. As a place to easily host metadata and content and try the repository model. From that perspective, I think it was a huge success. Without CAREO, I would likely still be saying that we need centralized institutional repositories to tightly manage resources. But, because of CAREO, I now know that we don't need repositories at the institutional level. Personal repositories are much more powerful, effective, and manageable." Yes, that's what I would take away from the experience as well.
