In this paper we describe the Language Box, a teaching and learning repository for language teachers based on the EPrints framework. Language Box differs from other content repositories in that it is designed as a living space, where teachers and lecturers can keep and manage working documents. It is focused around three key services: Hosting materials online, Organizing materials into collections, and Sharing them with the community so that they can be exploited, remixed and extended through activities. We believe that our novel approach may help to solve the problem of low user interest in teaching and learning repositories, and can inform others working on teaching and learning repositories in other domains.
