Synchronized Content and Metadata Management in a Federation of Distributed Repositories of Chemical Learning Objects

  title={Synchronized Content and Metadata Management in a Federation of Distributed Repositories of Chemical Learning Objects},
  author={Sergio Tasso and Simonetta Pallottelli and Osvaldo Gervasi and Razvan Tanase and Marina Rui},
The paper deals with the synchronization mechanism among the servers of a federation of distributed repositories for the constant updating of the didactic-scientific material, its properties and its locations. A shared metadata database is the synchronization point of reference and it allows to improve performance in terms of searching and downloading. The proposed federation is meant to deal with a large variety of different contents though the discussed prototype implementation is concerned…
