EdMediaShare providing opportunities to share practice

The EdMediaShare site from JISC Digital Media is developing some serious traction to support useful and usable video content. I think it has proved itself as a ‘proof of concept’.

The EdMedia Share site allows for the sharing of educationally useful content, provide opportunities for ‘finding’ content and allows for ‘critique’. The browsing by discipline and collection is very useful. We hoped the search by ‘learning design’ will also prove a successful attribute and are thrilled to see the DiAL-e being integrated.  The original ‘community’ site on the JISC pages as part of the original 2006 project was less successful than we would have liked so hopefully EdMediaShare will fill that gap. It was always our intention that the framework would create a community of practice.
