Widespread connectivity of the internet over PCs and Laptops has increased the use of the World Wide Web for educational purposes. There are educational resources broker systems based on educational meta-data standards, which search, locate and deliver educational resources. In this paper, we justify the need of a broker system that can also provide collaborative sharing of educational resources, along with knowledge representation behind those educational resources among and within educational institutions. This system especially caters to two usage scenarios: (a) one where it will assist students in locating resources and (b) one where it will assist students in exploring the concepts behind a given educational resource. We have described the system's functional and process architecture and provided some screens of the implemented system for both contributors and users. Finally, the system's educational implications are stated as summery of benefits along with future directions.
