Repository organisation when using weblcms.
It would be a nice feature to have a sort of automated organizing of the published course objects in the repository.
At the beginning a lot of teachers don't now how the repository is working. They will publish documents in a course, not knowing that these object also are available through the repository.
Once they know the existence of the repository and the advantage of it, they will want to use it.
With the use of the repository most people would want to organize the objects so they can easily manage the objects.
I know there is the possibility for some filtering, but people will want to put them in category's, since the possibility is there.
In most cases they will all ready have a lot of objects in it and organising them afterwards will generate some frustrations. Also keeping everything organised will require some extra effort.
There for I think it would be help full if there was some automatic organizing of the objects.
For example, in the weblcms a object of a course could be placed in a category with the same name as the coursecode.
This could be a setting of a course to switch this possibility on/of.
They still have all the advantages of the repository but there's some structural organizing in place that in most case will do the job. The still can move around the objects in the repository but this will not influence the course(s) it is published in.
