  1. Hello, thanks for the link to the “after the meeting” blog post I wrote. I also wrote a description of LRMI for the Creative Commons UK blog which you can see at http://www.creativecommons.org.uk/blog/tabid/84/EntryId/23/Learning-Resource-Metadata-Initiative-by-Phil-Barker-JISC-CETIS.aspx (and there will be more to come on my blog)

    End of shameless self publicity.

    Just to add to potential confusion, don’t forget that the IMS have LRM, Learning resource metadata — which adds a usage guide to IEEE LOM, and that as well as LOM in Europe we have CEN MLO, Metadata for Learning Opportunities. It’s like someone does this on purpose.

  2. Hi Evan,

    Thanks for covering these issues. I’d like to offer one point of clarification to your info on the LRMI–it’s technically inaccurate to say that the search engines (via Schema.org) are “promoting” LRMI. The LRMI spec is a proposal to extend Schema.org markup for learning resources. While we are the only group to come forward with a proposal, technically some other group could just as easily have offered another proposal. Our proposal has to go through a review process with the Schema.org leadership and has not been officially approved, although inclusion in Schema.org 1.0 looks likely. I see you’re on our mailing list, so you’ll know as soon as we do.

    Thanks again for your attention to these projects, and for explaining them in terms understandable to both the interested and uninterested.
