Learning Technology-Conceptual Model for Resource Aggregation for Learning, Education, and Training
|Publication Date:||29 March 2012|
This standard defines a conceptual model for interpreting externalized representations of digital aggregations of resources for learning, education, and training. The conceptual model defines a set of concepts and the relationships among them and is expressed as a formal ontology. Internal compositions and uses of digital resources are not specified nor are processing methods for resource aggregations.
Currently, resource aggregations used in learning, education, and training are defined in a variety of standards and specifications. The conceptual model defined in this standard facilitates interoperability by providing an ontology that can be used to represent a variety of aggregation formats. Interoperability may be achieved by the creation of crosswalks among the various aggregation standards and specifications. In addition, this standard may serve as a common reference for the development and evolution of standards and specifications for resource aggregations and may assist the development of profiles that maximize interoperability between the various aggregation formats.
