DCMI Education Linked Data Session, DC-2009 Conference, Seoul Korea

  1. 1. DC-Education Application Profile, IEEE LOM, ISO MLR ... Where Are We? DC-2009 Update Slides by Sarah Currier, DC-Ed Co-Moderator
  2. 2. DCMI Education Community <ul><li>“ The DCMI Education Community is a forum for individuals and organizations involved in implementing Dublin Core and other learning resource metadata in the education domain. The objective of the Community is to promote interoperability within the domain through the use of standard metadata and consensus good practices.” </li></ul>
  3. 3. DCMI Education Community <ul><li>“ The DCMI Education Community is a forum for individuals and organizations involved in implementing Dublin Core and other learning resource metadata in the education domain . The objective of the Community is to promote interoperability within the domain through the use of standard metadata and consensus good practices.” </li></ul>
  4. 4. DCMI Education Community <ul><li>Moderators: Diane Hillmann & Sarah Currier </li></ul><ul><li>Wiki here: http://dublincore.org/educationwiki/ </li></ul><ul><li>E-mail list here: http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/lists/DC-EDUCATION.html </li></ul><ul><li>DC-Ed Application Profile Task Group: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Sarah Currier & Diane Hillmann. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lara Whitelaw of the Open University (UK). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lorna Campbell, Phil Barker & John Robertson of JISC-CETIS (UK). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pete Johnston & Mikael Nilsson, DC-Arch & DCMI/IEEE Task Force </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Everyone who submitted use cases and vocabularies for this AP, and who has taken part in our web-conferences. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Representatives from related standards groups: IEEE LOM; IMS; ISO MLR and others. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>http://dublincore.org/educationwiki/DC_2dEducation_20Application_20Profile </li></ul></ul><ul><li>DCMI/IEEE Taskforce for DC/LOM compatibility work </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Mikael Nilsson & Pete Johnston </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>http://dublincore.org/educationwiki/DCMIIEEELTSCTaskforce </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. DC-Education Application Profile Task Group <ul><li>DC-Ed Application Profile Module </li></ul><ul><li>Aim: to provide a “modular” AP to support interoperable description of educational aspects of resources. </li></ul><ul><li>Scope: educationally significant properties available in Dublin Core + any other educational properties, e.g. elements from the LOM. </li></ul><ul><li>Out-of-scope: will not define or give guidelines for usage of non-educational properties, or non-educational usage of properties. </li></ul><ul><li>Modular: aim to enable people to “plug in” the AP with other APs they are using, e.g. the Libraries AP, the Scholarly Works AP, Collection Description AP, a modular accessibility AP, or a local AP. </li></ul>
  6. 6. DC-Education Application Profile Task Group <ul><li>DC-Ed Application Profile Module: Progress </li></ul><ul><li>Requirements gathering: 49 use cases gathered from 23 countries and a range of educational sectors. </li></ul><ul><li>Functional requirements: generic ones drafted; specific ones based on use cases to be completed. </li></ul><ul><li>Domain model: draft domain model completed (work-in-progress) </li></ul><ul><li>To be determined based on all of above </li></ul><ul><li>Proposed elements (new and existing): To be determined based on above. Some will likely be from IEEE LOM. </li></ul><ul><li>Description Set Profile: Requirements still to be determined (first attempt at modular AP; DSP requirements unclear; LOM elements require completion of DCMI/IEEE Task Force work). </li></ul><ul><li>Usage Guidelines: To be developed. </li></ul>
  7. 7. DCMI/IEEE LTSC Task Force <ul><li>DCMI/IEEE LTSC Task Force: Progress </li></ul><ul><li>Two documents for joint publication in development: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Resource Description Framework (RDF) Vocabulary for IEEE Learning Object Metadata (LOM) Data Elements. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Recommended Practice for Expressing IEEE Learning Object Metadata Instances Using the Dublin Core Abstract Model. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Remainder of 2009: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Extract RDF vocabulary. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Prepare drafts for balloting process within IEEE. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sync process with DCMI publication process. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Process ballot feedback and prepare for final publication. </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>so ... </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>... noting our community commitment to working with other educational metadata standards initiatives to increase and enhance interoperability, rather than contributing to unnecessary complexity and competing standards ... </li></ul>
  10. 10.
