To summarise he past week, it has been a rather busy and productive one! I have been concentrating on producing more extensions for bebop, which will allow more high quality content to be pulled into WordPress and BuddyPress. Three extensions have been developed this week in total, enabling images from Flickr and video’s form Vimeo to be imported into BuddyPress. A third extension provides generic RSS support, pulling in content from RSS feeds from around the web. This means we now have a rich library of content providers, including the following:
- RSS feeds from the web
Unfortunately, we have still heard nothing from the people at JORUM, in regards to readiness of their API’s. However, if you think there is another source of OER content that we should have an extension for, please get in contact with us ASAP!.
The next phase of the project includes a little more development. We aim to produce RSS feeds for the content we have pulled in from the resources above, so we use the data elsewhere, for instance our staff academic profiles. Once this is sorted, we can shift our focus onto documentation, so people can learn what bebop is for, and how it can be used effectively.
