Yang Juan et al.
Education informalization is one kind of the profound reforms in education development history. Construction of educational resources is the basis of education informalization. To promote vigorously joint development, mutual employment and application of the quality resources is the main content of education informalization. The authors of this article take the view that the issue of joint development, mutual employment and application of higher education resources can be divided into two levels: The internal mutual employment within higher education institutions and mutual employment within the trades, regions or states territory. They point out that if an e-learning resources centre is to established, the mechanism of joint development, mutual employment and application can be realized within higher education institutions. As for the constructing objective of internal e-learning resources centre, the authors agree that they might include two respects: First, to realize the accumulation, mutual employment and application; second, to lay sound foundation for joint development and mutual employment between institutions.In the systematic framework, the article first introduced the overall framework of the campus e-learning resources centre and then from some other respects like resources storing, users retrieval of resources, authors rights and interests, they adopted the format of distributed-style of mutual employment and storing for e-learning resources. After that, the authors gave us a brief description of five key technological issues requiring consideration when constructing the learning resources centre based on distributed storing: the standardization of resources, the technological realization of standardization of resources, the extension of systems, the mutual connection with other systems, and security of the systems.At the end of this article, the authors take the Resources Center set up by the Institute of Educational Technology in Tsinghua University as an example and provide us with a more detailed introduction of the application format for constructing the campus resources centre and dealing with resources.
