ROLE releases Moodle recommenders for educational resources

The Open University has developed a widget bundle for providing recommendations to users of Moodle. The bundle consists of two widgets that recommend educational resources related to a particular course. The widgets of this bundle have been developed as Moodle blocks so that they can be embedded in the sidebar of a Moodle course.

The recommenders are powered by the Linked Data repository of the Open University, as well as the ROLE ObjectSpot and Binocs search services. The repositories from which recommendations are currently extracted include iTunesU, Google Scholar, YouTube, SlideShare, and Wikipedia.

To learn more about the bundle and try it out, visit the ROLE Showcase platform and PlaySpace.
