Abstract: The Agricultural Learning Repository tool (AgLR) is a new learning repository tool, built to meet the requirements collected by the stakholders/agricultural learning community, focusing mostly on multilinguality aspects as well as the automatic update of the Organic.Edunet AP and the ontology.
This tool is based on open-source software, always use the latest version of the Organic.Edunet ontology, supports automatic translation of metadata (domain-specific translation, proviing more accurate results) and other useful functionalities and adaptations for the agricultural stakeholders. Its main features are listed below:
Built on the open-source Omeka platform;
Uses the latest version of the Organic.Edunet IEEE LOM AP for the creation of metadata records;
Uses the latest version of the Organic.Edunet ontology for the classification of the learning resources;
The AgLR took is connected to the MoKi tool used for the management of the ontology through the ontology service API;
It features a user interface available in ten (10) languages; additional languages can be easily added using an online form;
Supports the automatic translation of metadata (Title, Description and Keywords) in ten (10) languages);
Supports the ”Suggest Metadata” functionality, for automatically extracting metadata from HTML pages;
Supports the Template functionality for minimizing the time needed for the creation of metadata records sharing identical information in metadata fields;
It is fully compliant with the OAI-PMH standard for exposing metadata of each collection/set through a unique target;
It supports ingestion of metadata in the form of XML files.
