The EdShare Software

iTunes U Digital media repository is built using the EdShare variant of the EPrints repository platform (also developed at Southampton). EPrints is a tried and tested research repository system used at over 200 institutions worldwide.

EdShare incorporates a set of extensions for EPrints that together create a more dynamic, interactive environment that is more suitable for teaching and learning materials. Key extensions include the resource preview tool, profiles, and collections.

The EdShare software is open source, and is available through the EPrints file repository. If you are interested in using the EdShare software to create your own teaching and learning repository then the EdShare team would love to hear from you.

This site is powered by EPrints 3, free software developed by the University of Southampton.
