ABSTRACT
With a growing number of digital libraries and other open education repositories being made available, open education specific recommender and search tools play an important role in helping teachers and learners find relevant resources. This paper discusses the design and evaluation of Folksemantic, a system that integrates OpenCourseWare search, Open Educational Resource "more like this" recommendations, and personalized recommendation functionality into a single open source project. Ongoing research is described.
