Deploying WikiEducator Content

September 18, 2008

WikiEducator has an energetic and supportive community that is collaborating in building Open Educational Resources. Many organizations still are tied to traditional Learning Management Systems for delivering online content to their students. I am experimenting with a way of packaging content taken from a WikiEducator collection in standard IMS Content Package and IMS Common Cartridge formats. The web service takes a URL pointing at a collection and produces a standard ZIP file for download and deployment in an LMS.

The tool is written in Python and makes heavy use of the BeautifulSoup HTML parsing library.
