Association of Remote Instructional Authoring and Distribution Networks for Europe

ARIADNE (Association of Remote Instructional Authoring and Distribution Networks for Europe) is an association of mainly Higher Education Institutions in Europe sharing learning resources. Having begun life as a project funded under the EC's Framework 3 programme, its membership has grown out of the original project partners, and it aims to provide a mechanism for the sharing of learning resources. Its most significant contribution has been the development of a learning content metadata scheme, which was harmonised with the IMS metadata specification, and submitted jointly to IEEE, where it currently awaits ratification.

The ARIADNE Knowledge Pool System is a European-wide distributed repository for learning and teaching resources, and documents relating to learning and teaching. It is sometimes also referred to as the "European Knowledge Pool". Further information about this system, as well as about the authoring and indexing tools that have been developed by ARIADNE can be found on the web site at:
