Metadata for Synchronous and Asynchronous Collaborative Learning Environments

Rory McGreal, Aug 03, 2004
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This paper "considers the use of... communication and collaboration technologies in educational settings and software systems.... [and] identifies specifiable uniformities in the structural and behavioural characteristics of these systems, and then uses these uniformities as a basis for its proposed data or metadata model." This is an important first step in consideration of one of the areas of metadata not well established by learning object and associated metadata: collaboration. This paper, and the next, should give the guardians of IMS and IEEE-LOM some pause for thought.
