Moodle Cute Repository

I received an email recently describing a new content repository from the Worcester College of technology, its called MrCute and is intended to be an optional add-on to the Moodle Virtual Learning Environment. More specifically, it extends the functionality of the IMS Repository system originally developed by Alton College, UK. From their website a repository is a storage area where materials – in this case elearning materials – can be held and from where they can easily be accessed by teachers and learners. IMS (Instructional Management Standards) Global Learning Consortium is an international body which aims to set standards for interoperability between learning systems. The specific standards involved in this case are the IMS Content Packaging Standards.
MrCute will be compatible with Moodle 1.8.2 but not with earlier 1.8 versions. You may like to give this site a visit and see what you think and please remeber to get back and post your views, but it certainly sounds worth while.

MrCute is developing! We're now working on a much enhanced Moodle repository system, and collaborating with NLN and Jorum. Take a look at www.learningobjectivity.com/mrcute.
