With Gates Grant, Ed Metadata Project Moves Into Next Phase
Hoping to have a standard framework for ed content, the site will soon be ready to be reviewed by the W3C, and will be listed on Schema.org in the near future.
Every year, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation awards grants to various organizations in the U.S. and around the world to fund promising education projects. This year’s recipient was the Association of Educational Publishers to continue its Learning Resource Metadata Initiative. The AEP now hopes to push the project into its second phase: adoption and implementation.
The LRMI aims to improve the search experience for educators and students via the creation and implementation of a standard metadata framework for educational content. AEP co-led Phase I of the project—the development of the framework—with Creative Commons.
Charlene Gaynor, CEO of AEP said that the project will be a great resource for the entire education community, and she is proud that her group will play a pivotal role in its adoption.
Currently, the LRMI specifications, which were drawn up by the LRMI Technical Working Group, were open for comment from the members of education community and the public at large. It is the first step in what AEP is hoping will be a full scale adoption and inclusion of the document into Schema.org. The specifications are now ready to be submitted to the Word Wide Wed Consortium for review.
The ultimate goal is to make LRMI the de facto standards for tagging education-related content on the web.
AEP will be hosting several briefings and informational sessions throughout the year, including webinars, regional events, and presentations at industry conferences, to impart current information about LRMI and answer publishers’ questions. AEP’s Content in Context Conference, scheduled for June 3-6 in Washington, DC, also will feature LRMI-related sessions. For the latest information on this initiative, please visit lrmi.net.
The AEP which is leading the project, is an organization that represents the industry of supplemental education publishing and includes, among its members, some of the industry leaders and distinguished content developers working in all media: conventional print and digital publishing.
