Webinar: Learning resource metadata for schema.org
Friday, 27 July 2012 from 15:00 to 17:00
In this webinar we will explore the background, intent and output of the Learning Resource Metadata Initiative (LRMI). The LRMI has proposed extensions to the schema.org microdata vocabulary with the aim of facilitating the discovery of learning resources through major search engines and other discovery services. We will provide an introduction to schema.org and describe the specific approach taken by LRMI.
The target audience is staff from UK Further and Higher Education with an interest in the resource dissemination of learning resources (for example Open Educational Resources, OERs) and building services for their discovery, especially those people involved in JISC projects and services. If demand is high, priority will be given to this audience.
The webinar will start at 15:00 UK time and run for about 2 hours.
