A CETIS workshop at the Repository Fringe 2011, Edinburgh, Friday 5th August

Encouraged by recent initiatives promoting the release of openly licensed educational resources there have been considerable developments in the innovative use of repositories, content management systems and web based tools to manage and share materials for teaching and learning. At this event developers and implementers of open repositories, content management systems and other tools presented and discussed recent updates to their systems and their application to learning resources.

The speakers lined up for this event covered a diverse range of topics that relate to "open systems". These include open source repository system software, repositories of openly licensed content, open access repositories, open standards and open APIs.
