About this collection

This collection is a sample excerpt of educational resources from the University of Calgary's Learning Commons Educational Object Repository (no longer active). Taken from the subject areas of the arts and science, 31 items from the repository were exported in the IEEE LOM (Learning Object Metadata) format and digested into a Greenstone collection. For sample LOM metadata, see this arts record, or this science record.

Traditional educational learning object repositories base searching and browsing around the provided metadata. This demonstration collection goes one step further and provides full-text indexing of the on-line resources, where possible.

Browse around the collection's items ordered by subject then title, or view the items chronologically. Alternatively search the text or titles of the items in the collection, optionally restricted to arts or science. When you view an item from the collection various views of it are available. You start by viewing its Learning Object Metadata (LOM) record in a tabulated form and divided into sections: these sections can be expanded or contracted to reveal more or less information as desired. Use the tabs at the top of the table to change the view of the learning object. There will always be a tab for "XML Record" which displays the metadata in its original IEEE LOM format. Depending on whether or not the learning object references an on-line resource that is available for indexing, a third tab may be present that displays the source document.
