Resource Finder Alpha Testing

We have been alpha-testing the new Resource Finder with our consortium partners. This utility will allow users to search for our open educational resources by type (text, video, image, etc.) and by license. We are also designing in a hierarchical subject tree which will allow users to filter their search results by one or more topics.

The feedback from the partners who took part in the test has been largely very positive. They have come back with a number of useful suggestions to further improve the resource finder before it goes live. Thanks to all involved.

This is in response to a large number of requests over the years from users wishing to have access to the movies whilst offline.
