Abstract

The use of digital educational media in higher education and K-12 is increasing, fueled by advances in media creation tools, changes in policy, the emergence of new models for media creation and copyright, and the increased technical sophistication of teachers and students. The infrastructure required to effectively manage these media is deficient, however. While there are valuable digital resources available, these resources in sum comprise a bewildering and disorganized array of new and old resources, in a wide variety of formats, accessed in a variety of ways without supportive narrative or indication of quality. These issues greatly inhibit the potential utility of the resources. This paper describes a pilot test of a new type of content repository – a content hub – which allows users tag, rate, and rank media not only in the repository itself but located on remote sites as well, all situated within the prevailing community of users.
