Tomorrow, the ProLearn LOMI research seminar series on Learning Objects, Metadata and Interoperability will take off. The LOMI seminar series is a roughly bi-weekly research seminar series over flashmeeting, a free web based video conferencing service.
The basic intent is to facilitate exchange of opinions, ideas, plans and results on the overall theme of learning objects, metadata and interoperability. The intended audience includes PhD. students, their supervisors, researchers, etc.
The sessions will be quite flexible. A typical scenario would be a brief introductory presentation, to set the context, 30 minutes of focused discussion and 30 minutes of more general exchange of news.
We will get started tomorrow. The sessions planned so far are:
