Microsites are ISKME’s comprehensive solution for hosting and indexing a unique content library while facilitating collaboration for a specific targeted audience. Microsites are best suited to organizations who seek their own unique library with its own domain that sits apart from OER Commons.
A Microsite is a standalone site built on the OER Commons infrastructure featuring the tools found on OER Commons combined with the branding, resources, and collections that your organization requires. Microsite features include, but are not limited to:
Customized for your organization's needs
Microsites can be customized to meet the requirements of an organization. Some examples of customized features include:
Custom Resource Collections
Within a Microsite, ISKME works with partners to develop customized taxonomies; our digital librarians work hand in hand with partners and content providers to identify, categorize, and describe relevant content. This includes creation, refinement, and import of high-quality, standardized metadata, custom taxonomies, and organized, hierarchical folders of resources, all to support effective searching and browsing of content.
Video and Advanced Video Integration
Import, host, and build collections of video resources. Video annotation tools are also available.
Microsites can be developed with multilingual support, with translated user interfaces and support for translated resources and help articles.
Contributions and Usage Reporting
ISKME provides regular analytic reports on content contributions and use. In addition, custom administrative dashboard and reporting functionality can be developed for Microsite clients.
Custom Permissions, Groups and Workflows
Microsites can be customized to offer security options, custom user roles and permission sets, work flows, and walled-garden areas for managing access to private content by select users, as needed.
