Education Metatagging Project Enters Phase Two!

Learning Resource Metadata Intiative

The Learning Resource Metadata Initiative (LRMI) has moved into the second phase of its proof of concept metadata tagging project, expanding its scope to tag English language arts resources, in addition to math content.

"Super Duper Publications is excited to be participating in Phase II of the Learning Resource Metadata Initiative," says Editor Beth Holland. "LRMI will make it much easier for speech-language pathologists, special educators, teachers and parents to find the Super Duper materials that will meet the needs of their children."

Participating publishers will work with Educational Systemics Inc.and tagging experts from Knovation to tag their resources to the LRMI specification for better discoverability on the web.  Any company that develops, distributes or aggregates learning resources will benefit from tagging their content to the LRMI schema.

"The LRMI is important as a common schema to coordinate intelligent connections to resources for users (students and teachers) to learn correctly the parts they are missing," said Jim Kirchner, CEO of LearningStation and a proof of concept participant. "If we can diagnose the specific area of misunderstanding, the LRMI will allow us to connect to valuable resources for learning."

POC Phase II participating companies are: Classroom Inc., Federal Reserve Bank New York, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Learning Media, LearningStation, Pearson Education, Rosen Publishing, PCI Education, Saddleback Educational Publishing, William H. Sadlier, Inc., Super Duper Publications, Utah Education Network and Virtual Nerd.
