I have set up a new wiki for discussion of issues and problems with the Learning Object Metadata standard at http://ariadne.cs.kuleuven.ac.be/vqwiki-2.5.5/jsp/Wiki?LOMnext.
—from that site—
The purpose of this wiki is to collect issues and problems with LOM (the Learning Object Metadata standard).
Currently, we are collecting such issues. At the May IEEE LTSC meeting, on May 16-17, we will have an opportunity to further discuss and build consensus around these issues.
The overall approach is to “fix” what is “broken” in a “maintenance release”. What can be “improved”, “added”, etc. will be discussed, but will probably not make it into a “maintenance release”. Rather, the “next generation version” of LOM would probably be scheduled for 2007 or 2008. A migration path from LOM-2002 to LOM-2008 will be essential.
Your input, comments and feedback will be greatly appreciated!
