The Learning Exchange is IRISS’s digital library of multimedia learning materials, audio and video, policy documents and research findings. Specialist organisations - for example, Shared Care Scotland and SCLD - are invited to contribute material to their own collections, which makes the Learning Exchange a great way for these organisations to publish and share material on the web.

NESTA, LGIU and SOCITIM are among several professional bodies highlighting the potential value of these tools.
