Come see what is new with eduCommons. This presentation covers case studies, features, additional functionality as well as future plans.

It has never been a better time to think about using eduCommons for your OER platform. In the early days of eduCommons, design decisions were taken to narrow the scope of eduCommons and focus on integration points with other tools and platforms, instead of building a single entire monolithic platform that tries to do everything. This strategy is now paying off, with a number of partners now integrating third party functionality directly into eduCommons. With features to scale at all performance levels, and functionality to make creating and publishing OER materials even easier. Find out about best practices for handling metadata, accessibility, semantic web features, discoverability, and copyright management, and how eduCommons makes all this easy. Find what others are doing with eduCommons, and what is possible with the latest code base. Participate in a discussion about eduCommons future, as well as find out what the latest road maps are.

Whether you are building your own OER repository or participating in more formal programs like OpenCourseWare, eduCommons can provide you with a solid, mature platform, with multiple integration points to many other educational platforms currently in use. Find out how you can build your own OER site and get the support you need to maintain and grow it.
