Xpert

Xpert Xpert (Xerte Public E-learning ReposiTory) project is a JISC funded project to explore the potential of delivering and supporting a distributed repository of e-learning resources.


Xpert allows teachers or students to search a large database of open learning resources suitable for students at all levels of study in a wide range of different subjects - and all available for reuse. One of the nice features of Xpert is RSS in (staying up to date with many OER sites worldwide from multiple institutions) and highly flexible RSS out, allowing users to be alerted to new resources available in any area of interest, e.g:

http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/xpert/scoreresults.php?keywords=%22black+death%22

http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/xpert/feed/%22black%20death%22

Finding reusable OER multimedia resources can be very time consuming, Xpert can make life simpler. Give it a try.
