GLOBE web site live

The GLOBE web site is live.

As a short reminder: “GLOBE is a consortium of online services and tools that provides an integrated search of learning objects for individuals and educational institutions worldwide. The consortium provides a distributed network of learning objects that meet quality standards. By sharing the resources through a federated search, strategic alliances and technical interfaces need only be made once, but all of GLOBE benefits from these partnerships.”

Current partners include ARIADNE, EDNA, MERLOT, EDUSOURCE and NIME. Federated search across the repositories is available from ARIADNE or MERLOT.

As I’ve mentioned before, “I believe that GLOBE will help to bootstrap world-wide federated search capabilities over all learning object repositories. In this sense, GLOBE could become the first global search engine for all learning object repositories!”
