Over deze norm
The primary purpose of ISO/IEC 19788 is to facilitate: (1) the description of a learning resource by providing a standards-based approach to the identification and specification of the metadata elements required to describe a learning resource, e.g. as a metadata learning resource (MLR) record; and (2) the search, discovery, acquisition, evaluation, and use of learning resources, for instance by learners, instructors or automated software processes. The interoperability of these functions can be achieved through harvesting or federated search processes, among other technologies and solutions. ISO/IEC 19788 is based on identified user requirements. ISO/IEC 19788 is modularly structured with all subsequent parts corresponding to a specified set of user requirements for the identification and specification of metadata elements having a particular focus and intended use in the description of a learning resource. This includes categories of metadata elements focused on technical perspectives, pedagogical aspects, availability and intellectual property aspects, bindings, etc. The primary purpose of ISO/IEC 19788 is to specify metadata elements and their attributes for the description of learning resources. This includes the rules governing the identification of data elements and the specification of their attributes. ISO/IEC 19788 provides data elements for the description of learning resources and resources directly related to learning resources. This part of ISO/IEC 19788 is designed to help implementers with a starting point for adopting ISO/IEC 19788, defining an application profile that specifies, through adding constraints to the use of some data elements, how the ISO/IEC 19788-2 element set can be used. This part of ISO/IEC 19788 provides a basic application profile as a recommended approach to enhance interoperability through an application profile with attributes such as presence type indicator, repeatability indicator and order indicator, applied to the Dublin Core elements specified in ISO/IEC 19788-2. Whenever learning resource descriptions are exchanged across repositories, interoperability issues are raised. For example, processing a query for learning resources in a given format requires that format information be available in all descriptions being searched. Likewise, searching or sorting based on date can only be done when a common format such as ISO 8601 is used in all sets. This application profile is an ISO/IEC 19788 Type 21 standard. It is recommended that it be used as a best practice guide that can be further refined by communities with data elements additions from other authorities or communities, including the IEEE Standard for Learning Object Metadata (LOM). However, there is no obligation for MLR stakeholders to use this application profile. This application profile provides records of metadata elements promoting best practices based on an international survey of commonly used data elements in an ITLET (information technology for learning, education and training) context. It also reflects the actual practices of both the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) and the IEEE Standard for Learning Object Metadata (LOM).
