AX-S Widget Demonstrator – update

leave a comment »

The Open University have kindly agreed to let us use a sample of their data in the demonstrator, which we are currently converting to XCRI-CAP 1.2 from their existing XCRI-CAP 1.1 file.  The thesaurus, which provides the weighted search functionality, uses JACS codes to identify related courses, so the sample data will also be coded appropriately.

While the data is being tidied up, InGenius Solutions have the development environment up and running and are starting to prototype demonstrator screens using the Open University look and feel.  We felt it was important to use a real university’s data and look and feel for the demonstrator to give an accurate picture of how it would be useful to existing institutions working on their own XCRI-CAP feeds.

Next steps:

  • Complete conversion of OU data from XCRI-CAP 1.1 to 1.2
  • Classify OU courses with JACS codes
  • Start on the first major iteration of development
