home Metadata for Education - an FAQ

This Metadata FAQ has been developed collaboratively during 2004 by participants from the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative, the IMS Global Learning Consortium, the IEEE Learning Technology Standards Committee and other organisations including CanCore?, ADL, JES and Co and CETIS. This FAQ provides guidelines and information and has no official status within any of these organisations. The intention is to continue this work and encourage participation from the wider community with the assistance of a Wiki hosted by CETIS.

No, SCORM will be futher developed and used based upon the simple fact that it is based on LOM, that and the DoD? is behind it $$$. Perhaps a better question is: Is LOM likely to be limited (in number of elements?) and what will be the long and short term effects of this application profiling?

Medbiquitous is creating HealthCare? LOM; which formally is an application profile of SCORM (medbiiq.org). The ADL Registry (ADL's instance of CORDRA) is also profiling LOM.

It has been shown to have real, significant benefits (technical and financial) is different commercial organizations. In short, its been widely adopted and used.
