Hello fellow OEG participants!
I am new to OERs and while I am a librarian by education, metadata is a whole complex world with the different options from DC to LOM to LRMI and the different facets of each.
I am surprised to find so little shared in the open about approaches to OER metadata and according to recent research (not published in the open), the metadata when used, is not serving us and our community well or effectively:
W. Simão de Deus and E. Francine Barbosa, “The Use of Metadata in Open Educational Resources Repositories: An Exploratory Study,” 2020 IEEE 44th Annual Computers, Software, and Applications Conference (COMPSAC) , Madrid, Spain, 2020, pp. 123-132, doi: 10.1109/COMPSAC48688.2020.00025. https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/9202802
I want to find folks interested and excited about working together on best approaches to metadata, sharing ideas and publishing about it in the open.
If you are someone interested or experienced in this area of work, please reply to the post, so we can connect!
If you know of resources about OER metadata best practices, please share in the thread as well!
