A groundbreaking learning content management system (LCMS) enabling the disaggregation and re-aggregation of learning objects based on the needs of the curriculum, continuum or learner. Independent of any creative force or business driver that may have catalyzed inception, most systems continue to be built with a notion that all of the users in a contributing organization or group have knowledge of the underlying taxonomy (taxonomy refers to the underpinning vernacular that information is based upon, and ultimately stored). This represents a very short distance from the file and folder structure embraced at the end of the last decade, which persists in many proprietary systems today. This requirement of local systems knowledge or intimate knowledge of data categorizations is flawed, and as the success and advent of Web2.0 technologies demonstrate – there is a better way.
Rather than simply recreate existing paradigms for creation of content management systems, created the Common Library™ Learning Object Repository (LOR). Common Library is a focused system that distills content assets and learning objects to an atomic or granular level. We refer to this as Molecular Content Management™. As a key component complementing tools in an organization´s learning technology portfolio, Common Library enables content, asset, and object reuse without complex conversion, import, or export.
