Searching Thousands of Learning Resources


Everyone is a publisher nowadays on the web, teachers included. The social web is growing at a fast pace, with more and more needs to web the content so as to make it accessible, annotated, and found. While this webbing creates a rich navigation experience, tools to access more resources are needed. Search tools are among the most used tools to discover more learning resources. However, their usage is currently rather limited and frustrating. This paper describes the challenges currently met, and the Open Discovery Space search tool, presenting how it addresses them.
