What tools does the iiRDS Consortium provide and how do they work?

iiRDS Open Toolkit

Not too much and not too little – the iiRDS Open Toolkit is the solution for getting first experiences and successes with iiRDS. Well-known technologies, intuitive handling, and a lot of knowledge in the backend of the tool contribute to this. The application facilitates the first steps and experiences in practice.

iiRDS Validation Tool

Some iiRDS packages generated contain errors because the export functions of some authoring tools or content management systems do not generate complete and/or correct packages. In addition, some metadata.rdf files are created manually and may contain errors. As a solution, a validation tool has been developed that allows authors and providers to check iiRDS packages for correctness.
