RIURE Red Iberoamericana para la Usabilidad de Repositorios Educativos
RIURE: Iberoamerican network for educational repositories usability is a project that aims to introduce pedagogical aspects in educational repositories. With this, and in addition to the technical metadata which they are currently based on, the pedagogical aspects would be then taken in account both in cataloging and searching.
This project has as purpose to:
embody multimedia content (video, games, simulations) in the repositories, both from the perspective of indexing and searching;
research and develop a set of relevant and good quality metrics, based on intrinsic and extrinsic educational materials to provide a more useful search system in what concerns the educational standpoint;
introduce a recommendation system based on the user profile, material and context which is integrated into the main learning environments that are used today.
