Managing digital resources is central to any education or training strategy. Organizations need to make the most of their digital resources by ensuring they are discoverable, available, adaptable, and usable in all contexts. CP IntraLibrary is Campus Performance learning objects repository and through its extensive connectivity is a natural choice around which organizations build integrated infrastructures for education and training.
Some Highlights Of The System
All files in one place
CP IntraLibrary can store all types of digital files: images, documents, presentations, video and audio files, formats specific to education such as IMS and SCORM content packages, and QTI (Question and Test Interoperability) files. By storing all these files in one shared repository they can all be easily discovered and used. This also means that updating a single resource will ensure that the new resource is available everywhere it is used.
Ease of Use
Every resource in CP intraLibrary has its own URL so it can be used anywhere where http is supported. In addition organizations can assign embed codes to any resource type so that each resource can be embedded, for example in a web page, a blog, an LMS or any other HTML page.
CP IntraLibrary's built-in workflow editor means that resources can be prepared and described consistently. Workflows can also support review stages in which peer-review can be undertaken.
Making quality visible
In order to highlight the quality of resources which have undergone thorough quality assurance processes CP intraLibrary supports "quality marks". These are not only visible signs of high quality resources but searches can be focused on discovering high quality resources.
Users of CP intraLibrary can be given custom roles and can be allocated to groups. Through external authorization it is possible to have people automatically assigned to suitable user groups.
Resources in CP intraLibrary are stored in collections, which control the type of access people have. CP intraLibrary allows six levels of access control: find; preview; export; upload; comment; and rating. Since each level of control can be allocated by default or on a group-by-group basis, CP intraLibrary collections are an ideal way to offer completely open collections and completely secure collections and every variation between.
CP intraLibrary supports multiple classifications so each resource can be mapped against different criteria: curriculum; educational level; general subject headings; learning objective.
Personalize your repository
Each user can create their own custom search and save them for frequent use. They can create RSS news feeds of their searches and share them with others so they will be informed when new resources become available. They can even create their own classification as a hierarchical My Favorites.
CP intraLibrary can be integrated easily with many systems in the organization's infrastructure.
Learning Management System
CP intraLibrary's built-in workflow editor means that resources can be prepared and described consistently. Workflows can also support review stages in which peer-review can be undertaken. CPintraLibrary has in depth integration with Moodle. This means that people create courses in by uploading content to their Moodle course. The digital resource is stored in CP intraLibrary and embedded into the Moodle course. The resource is then also available to others to use in their courses. When they search for resources through Moodle they discover all the resources their colleagues have created and shared. Upload, search and use all occur through the standard Moodle interface so no additional work processes are required for course creators.
Video Streaming and Transcoding
CP intraLibrary's integration with the Kaltura video streaming and transcoding systems means that users of CP intraLibrary get all the benefits of Kaltura without having to be aware of any of its technology. When video is uploaded to CP intraLibrary it can be stored in Kaltura but the metadata including thumbnail and duration is stored in CP intraLibrary. This means that videos are returned in CP intraLibrary search results along with all other resources and the links and embed codes provided by CP intraLibrary deliver a video stream from Kaltura, so even large videos playback immediately. The player skin and size can also be customized.
