3.11.6 Learning and training: metadata elements
Use the learning and training metadata to describe specific characteristics of the
learning content. The learning and training metadata elements provide a robust metadata model for
learning objects, built upon industry standards and best practices. Defined as a domain, these
elements are available for use in both the topic
<prolog> and the map
<lcLom> provides a set of specialized data elements to use to specify metadata in the learning topics and learning map domain.
<lomAggregationLevel> describes the functional size of the learning resource.
<lomContext> describes the typical learning environment where use of the learning object is intended to take place.
<lomCoverage> provides learning metadata about the temporal or spatial characteristics of the content, such as historical context.
<lomDifficulty> provides learning metadata about how hard it is to work through the resource for the typical target audience.
<lomInstallationRemarks> provides learning metadata about how to install and needed resources.
<lomIntendedUserRole> provides learning metadata about the normal user of the resource, most dominant first.
<lomInteractivityLevel> provides learning metadata about the level of interactivity between an end user and the learning object.
<lomInteractivityType> provides learning metadata about the the type of interactivity supported by the resource.
<lomLearningResourceType> provides learning metadata about the specific kind of resource used, most dominant kind first.
<lomOtherPlatformRequirements> provides learning metadata information about other software and hardware requirements.
<lomSemanticDensity> provides learning metadata about a subjective measure of the learning object's usefulness as compared to its size or duration.
<lomStructure> provides learning metadata about the underlying organizational structure of the resource.
<lomTechRequirement> provides learning metadata about the operating system(s) under which the learning resource can run.
<lomTypicalAgeRange> provides learning metadata about the age of the typical intended user.
<lomTypicalLearningTime> provides learning metadata about the approximate or typical time it takes to work with the resource.
