I've enabled OER Recommender, but it doesn't seem to work. If I use the form in folksemantic's web I get recommendations and I can see an access like below in Apache logs:
188.8.131.52 - - [09/Feb/2011:16:55:42 +0100] "GET /engineering-and-architecture/plataformes-de-desenvolupament-daplicacions-de-comerc-electronic HTTP/1.1" 200 28811 "-" "Java/1.6.0_11"
However, when I browse through our courses I don't get any recommendation at all and I don't see any access in Apache logs either. Is there anything else that must be done apart from enabling the "OER Recommender" option in Site Setup > eduCommons?
I have forwarded your post on to the developers of the OER Recommender platform, but in the mean time here are some things that you can check out.
And finally you can look at the page source and see if you are getting any HTML that has to do with the OER Recommender portlet. If I am remembering correctly the OER Recommender portlet is designed to not show anything if there is no recommendations. However, if you are seeing any part of the recommender in the HTML, it could be pointing to an issue with the URL being sent (or the call into OER R) If the portlet is not showing up, you can also check that it is assigned correctly by logging into eduCommons with an admin account and then browse to the course where it should be working. From there find the manage portlets link, click on it, and then look for the OER Recommender portlet assignment on the right. If it is there, but still not showing anything, again it will point to a problem with the results that OER R is returning. If it is not there you can assign it manually.
Here is an example of an eduCommons instance where the recommender is working, to use as a comparison.
If you are still having problems and none of the suggestions above help, post again and I will look into it further.
I've checked with this page for which I get recommendations if I submit it in the form at folksemantics.
From Firebug I see this request:
with the following in the headers:
and the following in the response:
I've tried from different machines/OS/browsers but still nothing.
The portlet is enabled and I can see it in the page source:
wget "http://www.oerrecommender.org/recommendations.pjs?educommons=true&u=http://ocw.nd.edu/anthropology/creole-language-and-culture&title=true" -O response
However, I don't get anything with my course:
wget "http://www.oerrecommender.org/recommendations.pjs?educommons=true&u=http://ocw.udl.cat/enginyeria-i-arquitectura/xarxes-ii&title=true" -O response
By the way, I also have our site registered in their web, both with RSS and OAI.
Any idea of what else can be the cause of the problem?
