        Definition of a lens


        A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

        What is in a lens?

        Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

        Who can create a lens?

        Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

        What are tags? tag icon

        Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
