Cooperation and Competition: National Learning Object Repositories

Objetos de Aprendizaje (OA) y Redes de Alta Velocidad, Bogota, Colombia, Ministry of Education, Colombia.

Based on my experience with eduSource and related projects, this talk provides an overview of learning object repository architectures, identifies core functionalities, and provides examples of several national repository networks. I also talk about open archives, OAI tools, and the e-Framework. I discuss issues in repositories, open (and open source) alternatives, and the question of federation versus harvesting.
