Brief description: A federated repository of roughly 80,000 educational resources at different levels of scope, granularity, purpose and type. It also includes collections of teaching methods and learning designs, some of which are represented in IMS LD.

Type of learning design resources: Apart from classic learning objects, OICS includes collections dedicated to teaching methods (generic descriptions of teaching and learning activities, e.g. problem based learning, think-pair-share, jigsaw, etc.) and learning designs (contextualized, ready-to-run descriptions of teaching and learning activities, e.g. an IMS LD unit of learning on academic writing, or a full MIT OpenCourseWare course on astrophysics).
About: OICS was developed in the ICOPER project and is hosted by WU Vienna University; it is a federation of various existing educational repositories, with additional collections of user-generated content (e.g. learning designs created and shared with OpenGLM).
