[Catacomb] Catacomb and CMS
Hi there. I have been working on educational modules for a content
management system and am new to webDAV and Catacomb. The content
management system (CMS) I am working with uses a mySQL database
backend. I have read the literature on the project and I believe there
could be a fit with what I am trying to do. I am hoping to use Catacomb
and WebDav as a means of storing collaborative project data for course
development as well as storing learning objects and their metadata.
I want the CMS to create a project folder for each project that
collaborators would use to share for their work. When projects are
complete, I want the CMS to "publish" from a project folder and store
the learning objects and their metadata so they can be easily searched,
found and recombined in the CMS. What I am looking for is some
direction and suggestions for structuring something that could work.
What kind of a tool would I use to add a project files and folders from
a CMS through the WebDAV server? A similar method would be needed to
extract the final project information from the project folder when the
project will be published.
I am programming in PHP.
Could searches using DASL be tailored to specific areas of the
repository? For example, in the same repository restrict searches to a
folder containing learning objects as opposed to those containing
project data. Would you recommend isolating these into separate
repositories as opposed in a single repository.
Can metadata be added to the records to extend search capabilities to
include information relevant to the learning objects. At this time, I
am working with IMS and CanCore metadata in learning objects and and
wish to find objects using this criteria as well.
Anybody interested in helping me out? Any constructive comments or
suggestions welcome. Thanks in advance for any responses.
