The Learning Resource Metadata Initiative has expanded its Proof of Concept tagging project to include language arts resources
WILMINGTON, DE, October 1, 2012 – The Learning Resource Metadata Initiative (LRMI) has moved into the second phase of its proof of concept metadata tagging project, expanding its scope to tag English language arts resources, in addition to math content. The LRMI is working to make it easier to publish, discover and deliver quality educational content on the web by creating a standard tagging framework for learning resources. Through its proof of concept project, the LRMI aims to document best practices for tagging to the LRMI specification and provide support for publishers by helping them understand the “real world” application of the LRMI. To date, 616 resources have been evaluated, tagged and aligned, with plans for another 450+ resources in upcoming rounds of tagging.
