LRMI Draft Properties

This page includes a table of properties being developed and discussed by the LRMI TWG. This list, and any information on this page, is in DRAFT form.

There are two tables below: "Education Specific Terms" and "General Terms." The inclusion of the General Terms is to indicate those terms that are important to learning resources but are generally applicable to most (or all) content types.


If you have feedback on these terms, please join the LRMI mailing list. There is current discussion happening already concerning some of the terms.
