1. Introduction and Definitions

LRMI Educational Use Vocabulary is a small vocabulary intended to provide values for the LRMI educationalUse property in learning resource description and web markup. It is one of several such vocabularies from LRMI. For a general description of the approach common to all LRMI concept schemes see the LRMI Concept Schemes page. As with all LRMI concept schemes, the intention is to provide a small number of broad, top-level concepts. Users who need to classify against more specific concepts are encouraged to declare these concepts using SKOS and to map them to the appropriate LRMI concept using skos:broadMatch.

The vocabulary is defined as a Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS) Concept Scheme. A subset of terms from the table shown on the LRMI Concept Schemes page is used in defining the concept scheme and its associated concepts. These terms are drawn from the SKOS and other namespaces identified in Section 2.



2. Namespaces and Scheme Identifiers

The namespaces in the table below are referenced in the definitions of the concept schemes and their component concepts:

Prefix IRI
dc http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/ DCMI Metadata Element Set
dct http://purl.org/dc/terms/ DCMI Metadata Terms
rdf http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns# RDF 1.1 Concepts vocabulary
rdfs http://www.w3.org/2000/01/rdf-schema# The RDF Schema vocabulary
skos http://www.w3.org/2004/02/skos/core# Simple Knowledge Organization System
xsd http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema# XML Schema (datatypes)

The IRI for the LRMI Educational Use Concept Scheme, http://purl.org/dcx/lrmi-vocabs/educationalUse/, is abbreviated as the prefix edUse. Thus edUse:assesses stands for http://purl.org/dcx/lrmi-vocabs/educationalUse/assesses.
