The Re-Usability Support System for E-Learning (RUSSEL) is a web-based open source software solution with a complete digital library/repository of e-learning content. It has built-in integration with the Learning Registry (LR) and offers additional functionality. Users are able to search and discover objects and manage and repurpose courses, documents, and multimedia assets. The e-learning content in the RUSSEL system includes ratings, analytics, and comments. These features allow users to find and use the best content available.
In addition, RUSSEL includes an Electronic Performance Support System (EPSS) that helps users create reusable Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM)-conformant content. It supports all development environments and styles with tools that take users through the process of identifying objectives, selecting an instructional design strategy, and adding content to a template associated with that strategy
