Managing Metadata with Resource Profiles

Stephen Downes, Half an Hour, Mar 26, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Short paper authored to state a position at an upcoming learning metadata standards conference. I won't be at the conference, but I'm hoping this paper will represent my views. Here's the abstract: Existing learning object metadata describing learning resources postulates descriptions contained in a single document. This document, typically authored in IEEE-LOM, is intended to be descriptively complete, that is, it is intended to contain all relevant metadata related to the resource. Based on my 2003 paper, Resource Profiles, an alternative approach is proposed. Any given resource may be described in any number of documents, each conforming to a specification relevant to the resource. A workflow is suggested whereby a resource profiles engine manages and combines this data, producing various views of the resource, or in other words, a set of resource profiles.
