New LRE features
In addition to supporting the launch of the LRE public portal, the MELT project has also provided a solution so that teachers can search for MELT/LRE content from within their own national portal. This has been implemented within the Irish Scoilnet portal http://www.scoilnet.ie/ and we think that many more Ministries will wish to offer this feature over the next twelve months. This solution is also likely to be of major interest to VLE and learning platform providers.

In a similar manner, the EUN will also make available in 2009 a LRE search widget that can be incorporated in anything from a national portal to an individual school web site. Below is the widget that will be integrated in the European Commission’s eTwinning portal that in May 2009 has nearly 60,000 active members and close to 6,000 school projects.
