Through the Faroes and OneShare projects the EdShare team have developed an innovative approach to teaching and learning repositories, learning from the best practices of Web 2.0 and re-imagining these repositories from the ground up as living sites, whether for a community or an institution. Many existing teaching and learning repositories base themselves closely on the research repository model, but research repositories are about Archiving, and ordinary practitioners rarely want to archive their teaching materials.
