Abstract

Focused on creating and finding OERs for food safety, food security, and agriculture curriculum improvement, each MSUglobal project has progressively delivered better opportunities for learners to discover and learn using content that has been gathered and organized by content experts. The partnerships and technology choices have produced a series of platforms, which have focused on the needs of specific tasks. The projects have built techniques for improving search and discoverability through more automated metadata. The projects have also created opportunities to include rich multimedia.
