Over deze norm
Learning Objects will only be reused if they can be easily located, evaluated, adapted and adopted by other people. Therefore it is crucial that Learning Objects are correctly classified, described, and indexed. Indexing an object using the Learning Object Metadata model requires a precise analysis of the content of the object and its main characteristics. Describing resources in this formalised manner helps users to understand the nature of an object and reduces ambiguity as to its potential relevance or usage. The Learning Object Metadata model includes a range of data elements that are used to describe the content and characteristics of a learning resource. These are complementary to other data elements that provide additional information about the resource in natural language, usually in the language of the Learning Object and/or the Learning Object indexer. The choice of an appropriate "vocabulary" for elements that describe the content and characteristics of a resource is crucial to help facilitate successful search and retrieval and to ensure that metadata records are interoperable. This report addresses the issue of which vocabularies should be used for specific categories and data elements of the LOM. In addition the project has developed a web based registry of vocabularies, thesauri, classifications, taxonomies relevant to the field of education and learning technology. This registry can be accessed by the international online learning community at http://www.cenorm.be/isss/LTvocabulary/vocrep.html. The registry will be an important resource for users of the LOM, as all the specialised literature is unanimous in emphasising the difficulty and expense of creating new controlled vocabularies, e.g. multilingual vocabularies, ex nihilo.
