DESCRIPTION

In this talk we will report about a mainstreaming activity of the EC-funded research project iTEC: Based on our experiments with open standards such as IMS LTI Knowledge Markets has successfully set up the market place Eduthek an electronic market place solution for educational content and tools. Eduthek directly connects with Austrias leading learning management systems DotLRN and Moodle hereby serving more than 2.000. Based on a new level of interoperability, end-users have the chance to experience a highly integrated solution when connecting to remote content and tools. In the meantime Eduthek has already attracted Austria's leading publishing houses who benefit from a direct, but easy-to-use channel to school learning environments. In this talk we will sketch the architecture of Eduthek and report from our lessons learned in the beta test phase.
