Abstract [en]

The growth of the Internet and the World Wide Web is transforming teaching and learning at all levels of education in the workplace and at home [IMS]. The information pieces or resources for purposes of learning and education construct a new type of web resources. This new kind of web resources with quite distinct features is evolving on the Internet, called Learning Domain. An important characteristic of these resources (asynchronous systems) is that it can be used as a teaching medium as well as a source of knowledge about a subject area [MBA1, MBA2]. Two major parts, closely related to a learning domain, are learning resource providers and consumers. The information providers supply learning resources and the information consumers use the learning resources. Usually, learning information, such as courses, is stored and managed in an information system or a local web site. The supplier may give a sort of description of the structure of the information. This description is termed as metadata. A means for the information suppliers to describe metadata is called metadata model. From the point of view of the resource consumers, they expect to easily find the exact learning knowledge they need. The requirements and goals express what sort of learning materials they are seeking. The consumers may also provide their profiles as support. Indeed, profiles are sometime quite helpful. However, these requirements and goals can be vague, ambiguous, and even in conflicts. The profiles provided by the end users are very likely incomplete and bias-prone. In the next section, we describe several concepts used in the paper. In section 3, we propose a metadata model for learning objects through defining possible components within a learning domain. Then in section 4, we discuss an implementation issue for learning system based on a metadata tool. In the final section we conclude the paper with some discussions of our future work.
