What is a ‘Digital Resource’?

By this we mean any collection of information and/or materials put together or created by a teacher and/or class – such as a blog, wiki, website, or a library of videos, images, sounds. It needs to be in digital form and accessible as a learning resource by the intended audience (from teacher and students, to the school community or anyone).
