The JISC Funded Faroes Project has been working to reinvent Teaching and Learning Repositories learning from the best practices of Web 2.0. They have successfully deployed an innovative repository called The Language Box that acts as a community repository for Language teachers. The Faroes team has discovered that more sophisticated profile pages give users a home within the repository, act as a focus for their work, and help them feel more ownership of the work that they deposit. This increases the visibility of the repository and encourages more deposits.
The allAboutMePrints project will build on the work of Faroes to make Sophisticated Profile pages available to any repository based on the EPrints Project. The project will:
The Live Data features and widgets will be developed in collaboration with the existing Language Box community, and will be of deployed to the Language Box as well as being made available for installation in repositories in other institutions.
