The LRMI (Learning Resource Metadata Initiative): http://www.lrmi.net

Reasons why content creators might want to use it: http://www.lrmi.net/impact/for-content-creators

Us adopting the LRMI on webmaker.org would be a huge boost for Creative Commons, and potentially valuable for us in terms of being part of a global pool of OERs (Open Educational Resources). 

It looks like the properties included in Table 1 (LRMI Additions to Schema.org/CreativeWork) might be the most relevant? http://www.lrmi.net/the-specification

(I thought I'd file this as there's been an epic email chain between Jisc Cetis - who are looking after the LRMI for Creative Commons, the Open Badges team, and parts of the Webmaker teams!)
Very happy to support this work if it goes a head.  Just get in touch with Phil or I any time if we can be of assistance, or provide any input.
Hey, Chris - any thoughts on how easy this would be to add to makeAPI?
Flags: needinfo?(cade)
We could extend the Make Object model to contain an optional LRMI object, which contains all of the LRMI properties.

We'd need to build the capability to create/edit this LRMI info in the tools. Either in the tool itself, and/or using some type of UI built into the `/me` makes page.

Assuming published makes from Thimble/Popcorn can be crawled via Search Engines, we can output this LRMI metadata on their pages in meta tags. i.e: view-source:http://lrmi.net/examples/Complex_Area_Problems.html

easy? - not necessarily - But certainly not impossible.

Assigning to Brett for a planning/resource decision. WONTFIX, IceBox, or assign as you see fit, please.

forgive if I'm not understanding - is there a way the tags we use for web lit be translated into LRMI?  ie if we tag within current UI using web lit tags, could we simply also add it to make object at that time so tha a user wouldn't need to even know LRMI is happening?

The reason I think we should give it a 2nd look is that currently we are not great at SEO or discovery outside of Webmaker and LRMI seems to be a step towards that.
Yes, we could put together some kind of mapping for weblitmap tags -> LRMI properties. assuming we're doing this on the MakeAPI server, it'll end up being a step in the create/update process for makes.

Hi Brett, Chris, would you like any help with this? I'm don't know much about the weblitmap tags but if you can provide an explanation I can see what maps to LRMI.

I'm not sure where to find information about web literacy map tags. I'll have to ask around.

hmm, not sure how that fits in to what LRMI does. How do those machine readable tags relate to a description of a learning resource? Do the tags form a taxonomy somehow, each with a label, description, URI?
The webmaker.org site is no longer developed.
