Event will help educational content providers understand best practices for implementing new Learning Resource Metadata Initiative (LRMI) specification for increased discoverability
WILMINGTON, DE, May 16, 2013 – On Wednesday, June 5, 2013, from 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., the Association of Educational Publishers (AEP) will host a free LRMI Workshop following its annual Content in Context (CIC) conference in Washington, D.C. The workshop will provide background information and updates on the Learning Resource Metadata Initiative (LRMI), a project co-led by AEP and Creative Commons to create an education-specific extension of the Schema.org web markup standard. Like Schema.org’s goal to improve the general search experience, the LRMI aims to make it easier for educators, students, and others to find precisely the right instructional materials at the right time. The workshop is free and open to both CIC attendees and the general public.
