CALIBRATE is a key component in the new Learning Resource Exchange that the EUN will launch in 2008
On 23 March 2006, CALIBRATE and the EUN LIFE project hosted a seminar in Brussels for almost 100 organisations with an interest in digital educational content including: Ministries of Education, regional educational authorities, commercial publishers, broadcasters, cultural institutions and other non-profit organisations who are offering extensive but heterogeneous catalogues and repositories of online content to schools.
The audience heard how the network of nine repositories that will be connected in CALIBRATE will constitute part of a larger federation of learning resource repositories called the EUN Learning Resource Exchange. The portal that is being developed for the group of schools taking part in the CALIBRATE project evaluation will also serve as the model for a new LRE portal that can be accessed by all schools towards the end of 2008. The LRE will bring together and make accessible content, not only from the EUN projects such as CALIBRATE, but also from a wide range of European and international LRE partners.
Presentations from the LRE seminar and more information on how content providers can join the LRE is available at: http://lre.eun.org.
