What is this?

DiscoverEd is an experimental project from ccLearn which attempts to provide web-scale search over educational resources. Metadata, including the license and subject information available is exposed in the result set.

DiscoverEd is a prototype intended to explore how structured data may be used to enhance the search experience; there are a number of known issues.

Where do the results come from?

Results come from institutional and third party repositories who have expended time and resources curating the metadata. These curators either create or aggregate educational resources and maintain information about them.

How can I help?

If you're a producer or curator of educational resources and would like to be included in the search contact Ahrash Bissell or Nathan Yergler. If you're an educator, we want to hear from you. What works for you? What's broken? What can be improved?
