Minguillón, Julià and Conesa, Jordi (2011) From institutional repositories to personal collections of learning resources. pp. 1-5. In: Proceedings of the The PLE Conference 2011, 10th - 12th July 2011, Southampton, UK.
Institutional digital repositories are a basic piece to provide preservation and reutilization of learning resources. However, their creation and maintenance is usually performed following a top-down approach, causing limitations in the search and reutilization of learning resources. In order to avoid this problem we propose to use web 2.0 functionalities. In this paper we present how tagging can be used to enhance the search and reusability functionalities of institutional learning repositories as well as promoting their usage. The paper also describes the evaluation process that was performed in a pilot experience involving open educational resources.
