Library for Learning (L4L)

The Library for Learning (L4L) is a portal to search and find educational resources created by Wageningen teachers. The portal includes hundreds of teaching materials from WUR, such as videos, e-modules, audioclips, and infographics. The L4L portal aims to be a source of inspiration and reusable material.

Share

The L4L allows you to share your work both within and outside WUR. You are invited to add your own digital educational material!

You you can easily upload your material through the new upload form. During the uploading process you can indicate if you want to share your material with WUR colleagues only or also with the general public. When sharing with the public, you need to add a usage license to the material such as a Creative Commons (CC) license. More information about licensing can be found on the webpages of the Copyright Information Point (CIP) and on the L4L upload form.

You can help us improve the quality of the material in the L4L by providing good titles, keywords, and a short description of the content. For knowledge clips, additional information is obtained and indexed from the autocue text and the text in the slides. The more information you give, the more easily an object can be found by other teachers.

Access

Digital educational materials are often scattered over different servers, networks, and personal and local drives. The L4L aims to help teachers to search and find educational materials in one database.

In the L4L, you can simultaneously search several collections, filter by source, type and contributor, and retrieve the original educational object in one click. The L4L contains metadata and descriptive information of educational materials from different collections. The educational objects themselves are managed and stored in several collections, such as the WURtv servers. The L4L regularly harvests the metadata of the records. The quality of the metadata depends on the available information in the different collections and on the quality of metadata that teachers provide when uploading their material.

Reuse

Reuse can be using the material as it is, adapting it to your needs, or just drawing on it as a source of inspiration. 

The L4L is publicly available. Everybody can search and find our educational materials and reuse them as indicated by the Creative Commons license. Some material can be accessed and reused only by WUR staff. If you want to reuse these materials, please first contact the author of the material to avoid overlap between courses.
