Multimedia Learning Systems Based on IEEE Learning Object Metadata (LOM).
Holzinger, Andreas; Kleinberger, Thomas; Muller, Paul
One of the "hottest" topics in recent information systems and computer science is metadata. Learning Object Metadata (LOM) appears to be a very powerful mechanism for representing metadata, because of the great variety of LOM Objects. This is on of the reasons why the LOM standard is repeatedly cited in projects in the field of eLearning Systems. This multimedia learning related technology could enhance conventional learning systems. Some applications have many possibilities to interpret and use the information of the LOM base schema. One of the disadvantages of the very complex metadata structure is the fact that it is difficult or confusing to determine the relevant elements for a satisfying result. Therefore, a learning system based on the LOM standard is expected to provide an intuitive user interface that supports the user in getting good results. This article describes why metadata is needed, discusses the development from Dublin Core, Gateway to Educational Materials (GEM), and Warwick-Framework to the IEEE LOM, and presents four examples of successfully implemented systems. (Contains a list of 11 Internet resources and 19 references.) (Author/AEF)
