Abstract

At the University of Southampton, in the UK, we have been developing the Research Repository (e-Prints Soton) since 2005, to showcase the research output and make it more accessible. As a significant next step, the University has taken the strategic decision to develop a repository for educational materials. In developing EdShare at Southampton, we are promoting a cultural shift to a more open and collaborative approach to scholarship as well as research. Successful implementation in such a context requires a lightweight and very simple approach to sharing content facilitated by web 2.0 functionality.
