Digital Learning Repository, University of
Dublin, Trinity College Vincent.Wade_at_cs.tcd.ie

If collections (of learning material) on which
individuals have worked hard are forgotten or
neglected, as some already seem to be, we will
end up re-creating, re-discovering and
re-describing materials many times over
(Holden 2003)

What is the NDLR?
  • NDLR is a NATIONAL online service for Irish
    Universities and Institutes of Technology
  • supporting the collaboration and sharing of
    learning and teaching resources.
  • Pilot project Goal
  • Producing a full ongoing repository service for
    Teaching and Learning Resources
  • Developing and supporting communities of
    academics in different academic disciplines
  • A joint initiative of the
  • IUA Universities and institutes of Technology,
  • funded by the HEA, and hosted by HEAnet

National Repositories for Learning ?
Learning Repository enables the storage,
discovery and retrieval of learning materials
and their descriptions, from local or
distibuted sources
  • The need for Learning Repositories
  • Resource inaccessibility
  • Inefficiency in strategy of commercially produced
    content
  • The google effect
  • Support for communities
  • (Jorum 2006)

NDLR Project Milestones (2004 2007)
  • Phase 2 July 1st 2006 Dec 1st 2007
  • Pilot national digital repository to university
    institute of technology staff
  • Investigate and support multiple Academic
    Communities of Practice (cross institutional,
    single discipline)
  • Investigate interoperability issues wrt Library
    Research Repositories etc.
  • Evaluate pilot usage and capture key user
    requirements for full NDLR service
  • Provide comparison of NDLR specification against
    existing closed open source repository service
  • Provide full NDLR service specification roll
    out plan

11
NDLR Communities of Practice
  • Inter-Institution academic groups working toward
    improving the subject specific learning
    experience
  • Online Tools to aid academic communities e.g.
  • Collaborative Communication tools
  • Drupal, Bloggs, Moodle, MySakai, etc
  • Wikis and Shared Websites
  • Video/Audio Conferencing Services
  • Support, guidance training for Communities of
    Practices

Repository Services
  • Storage, management and retrieval of any digital
    format including (complex) digital resources
  • Tools for Resource Management e.g. workflow,
    import Packages,
  • Digital Rights Management

    repository

15
Current Status
  • Pilot repository online and ready to receive
    Teaching Resources
  • Some initial communities set up / being set up
    and hosting launches
  • Education, e-Learning, Modern Languages, Computer
    Science (Graphical, Programming (Java),
    Databases), Veterinary and Bio-Environmental
    Sciences, Nursing Midwifery
  • Initial Teaching Resources uploaded to repository

16
Activities 06
