TeacherShare is a proof-of-concept site where educators can share links and learning resources, similar to how social bookmarking services like del.icio.us function. While the learning repository concept isn’t new, this implementation as a collection of shared links has some interesting social features like ranks, comments, and recommendations. It also makes use of a tag cloud for navigation of contributed resources, which makes locating resources much easier than “traditional” learning repositories. RSS feeds are available by tag as well.

Now, if they only had a logo that made use of gentle gradients and reflections it’s web2.0-ness would be complete.

I stumbled across this site looking through one of the presentations at the site for the course T-502 (Learning Media that Bridge Distance and Time) (on of Harvard’s course iSites).
