Kalla. Madhu Sudhana, Dr V. Cyril Raj, Dr T.Ravi


Learning objects offer a new conceptualization of the learning process; they provide smaller, self-contained, re-usable units of learning. The learning objects must have an external structure of information to facilitate their identification, storage and retrieval. This paper examines current metadata standards and their characteristics that provide semantic annotation related to learning Objects. Furthermore we explored the metadata application profiles in educational context along with their base schemes.


Keywords: Learning Objects, Metadata Standards, Semantic annotation, Educational Metadata, Application Profiles, characteristics of metadata schemata, goals of annotation.
