There has been some interesting work done in the area of Open Educational Resources as regards harvesting material from different sources.

Unfortunately I only found out about the workshop too late, I would have enjoyed going. We are looking into this matter, in particular the presentation layer at the moment. We will be looking at protocols later in the year.The project is known as TRENT (internal working name): trent.bufvc.ac.uk for the associated wiki
