Working Group Charter:
Note: This working group has been rechartered. [new charter]
The objectives of the working group are to discuss and develop a proposal for the use of Dublin Core™ metadata in the description of educational resources. The scope includes educational resources applicable for many national education communities and cross-sectoral communities (e.g., K-12, further and higher education and lifelong learning).
The working group will develop qualifiers and/or extensions to the Dublin Core™ element set that will describe educational material for the purpose of enhancing resource discovery. It is expected that the resulting metadata will include educational qualifiers that fall within the scope of existing Dublin Core™ elements and potentially some that are specific to the domain of education.
