Virtual Learning Commons

The Virtual Learning Commons is a tool that will enable scientific communities to bookmark resources and compile them into collections. These collections can be shared, commented on, analyzed through visualizations, rated, etc. The purpose of the system is to promote community participation to create collections that will enable scientists to know about new technologies and ways to incorporate them into their workflows.
