This page documents ways in which developers may use the data gathered by the project for other purposes.
DiscoverEd project is a web-scale search of educational resources with a special emphasis on Open Educational Resources (OER). As such, it utilizes a web-wide index, promoting results which have been identified as OER. ccLearn is serving as an aggregation point for other organizations which have identified or produced OER.
Data is aggregated from several sources, including:
- RSS and Atom feeds (title, description and subject information)
- OAI-PMH repositories (OAI-DC metadata)
- Crawled pages (embedded RDFa)
The aggregated information, along with source annotations, is stored in a triple store. This will be available soon as a SPARQL endpoint.
