The Learning Resource Metadata Initiative (LRMI) has released a technical briefing about The paper was co-authored by Phil Barker and Lorna M. Campbell of Cetis, the Centre for Educational Technology, Interoperability and Standards.

LRMI, which we have reported on here, "has developed a common metadata framework for describing or 'tagging' learning resources on the web."

The Cetis website says, "This briefing describes for a technical audience. It is aimed at people who may want to implement markup in websites or other tools they build but who wish to know more about the technical approach behind and how to implement it. We also hope that this briefing will be useful to those who are evaluating whether to implement to meet the requirements of their own organization."

In making the announcement in a W3C list, Barker explained, "We often find that when explaining the technology approach of LRMI we are mostly talking about, so this briefing, which describes the specification for a technical audience should be of interest to anyone thinking about implementing or using LRMI in a website or other tool. It should also be of interest to people who plan to use for describing other types of resources."
