Institutional repositories for teaching and learning require some subtly different approaches to the now well established institutional repositories for research. The EdShare resource at the University of Southampton has an evolving interface on the EPrints software platform, with new functionality being designed in close cooperation with a demanding set of users. It is moving away from the formality of the research repository and closer towards a Web 2.0 look and feel. With a growing emphasis on multimedia resources the focus will visually be more on the resource and less on the metadata.

EdShare is being designed to support people working together and developing new ideas and resources for mutual benefit. Sharing for collaboration and re-use is a key motivation. This is being encouraged by mandating minimum metadata, while providing good exemplars, and providing a range of viewing options from private to full Open Access.
