As more and more institutions and companies in Canada develop online learning content, the importance of learning objects and the metadata used to describe them becomes clear. EduSource has brought together Canada's leading experts, researchers and practitioners in the field of e-learning for the purpose of defining and testing a world-class infrastructure for learning object repositories (LOR) and to produce a Repository in a Box prototype that will include metadata guidelines, software tools, hardware specifications, best practices and methods for generating communities of use that would allow any organization to build and connect its own repositories.
