The Worcester Learning Box Repository Project is being carried out at the University of Worcester in partnership with the University of Southampton. The project is part-funded by JISC.
The overall aim is to start up a new learning materials repository at the university based on “Learning Box”, a fresh approach developed within the Faroes project at Southampton. The new approach is one involving a minimum of metadata, with as much of the management and access controlled by the users as much as possible, in the spirit of Web 2.0.
The project will run from 1 April 2009 – 31 May 2010
