Front page of Spider website

Spider is a Swedish national search service for digital learning resources. This service, which uses learning resource metadata for searching, connects a number of Swedish Learning Object Repositories and offers a single point for searching digital learning resources. The Spider search forms can easily be added to any web page or LMS using one of the Spider Widgets. By combining the Spider search service with the WILD Curriculum Cloud Service it will soon be possible to dynamically link digital learning resources to the national curriculum and syllabuses using Semantic Web technology. Version 2.0 of the Spider service will be released in May. Find out more.
