    Results from a study of the implementation of metadata application profiles in Agricultural Learning Repositories 2008

    In technology-enhanced learning, metadata interoperability has been identified as an important issue. It allows not only the exchange and preservation of crucial learning and teaching information (such as competency profiles, learning activities, and descriptions of learning resources), but also its future re-use among a large number of different systems and repositories. In the field of agricultural education and training, learning technologies’ specifications and standards have not yet b een widely adopted. Few initiatives have reported implementing them, and in most cases only to describe learning resources by using IEEE Learning Object Metadata (LOM), Dublin Core (DC) or a combination of the two. This results in introduction of dispersed efforts and systems with significant differences between them. In this paper, we present results of a study aiming at the review and assessment of implementations of metadata standards in agricultural learning repositories. More specif ically, it assesses the current status of development and implementation of metadata application profiles based on standards such as IEEE LOM and DC.

    AgriDrupal: repository management integrated into a content management system 2011

    One of the main obstacles towards a more efficient management and sharing of agricultural knowledge is the lack of good standard-compliant tools whose adoption and maintenance is really sustainable. In particular, in the implementation of repositories, agricultural Institutions have often faced some common issues in the selection of appropriate software tools, like the need to integrate a repository search and browse interface with their website, the need to implement custom content mo dels, or custom metadata models, and the need to be able to exchange information with other systems and participate in networks. The proposed poster will describe AgriDrupal, a “suite of solutions” for agricultural information management and dissemination, with special functionalities for repository management, built on the Drupal Content Management System. These solutions are provided, discussed and tested by different Institutions and individuals who are sharing their experiences in the AgriDrupal community.

    Comparing Different Metadata Application Profiles for Agricultural Learning Repositories 2009

    Agricultural learning repositories can provide new opportunities for sharing, accessing, using and reusing learning resources online. Metadata plays a crucial role in such systems: apart from simply indexing resources, metadata makes it easier to discover a learning resource in a repository, as well as to decide about ways to use it for teaching or learning purposes. In the context of agricultural education and training, a variety of appropriate metadata standards may be selected, adapted and im plemented for a learning repository. In this paper we introduce the concept of metadata for agricultural learning resources, and compare two particular cases: one application profile based on the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set (DCMES) and the other based on the IEEE Learning Object Metadata (LOM). The paper attempts to identify similarities and differences between the two case studies and to outline issues that have to be resolved in order to harmonize such efforts.
