LRMI stands for 'Learning Record Metadata Initiative' and is a (yet another) mechanism for describing learning resources. See more here. This post describes the LRMI Alignment Object, which is intended to describe how a given resource fits into curricular or educational standards requirements, such as the US Common Core State Standards or the English National Curriculum (the article has a good set of links to similar standards). A number of alignment object syustems have come on stream recently (since everyone thinks it's the 'holy grail' of resource metadata) including Kritikos and OER Commons (both of which are described in the article).
