JISC RedFeather project funded

David Millard’s blog describes a new project that is going to involve collaboration with sotonDH and the Archaeological Computing Research Group:

“RedFeather (Resource Exhibition and Discovery) is a proposed lightweight repository server-side script that fosters best practice for Open Educational Resources (OER), it can be dropped into any website with PHP, and which enables appropriate metadata to be assigned to resources, creates views in multiple formats (including HTML with in-browser previews, RSS and JSON), and provides instant tools to submit to Xpert and Jorum, or migrate to full repository platforms via SWORD. RedFeather will require no significant technical expertise and no database, but will provide a simple and effective repository solution for smaller projects, individuals, or those seeking to demonstrate OER in order to justify a more significant investment in an organisational repository.”
