mEducator and Standards

Existing standards for describing learning objects, in particular IEEE Learning Object Metadata (LOM) [15] and its extension Healthcare LOM [16] - designed by MedBiquitous to provide for the specific demands of medical and healthcare education - were considered as the starting point for the development of the schema. This starting point was also based on previous research done by [17] whose input to the current work was fundamental. To continue, the XML binding of IEEE LOM was initially reused by mEducator in order to implement the scheme in XML. However, as the need to ensure that the metadata was compliant with the principles of Linked Data became clear, RDF [18] was identified as the most appropriate framework to use. The notion of linking between resources and ontologies through RDF URIs offered a way of benefitting from the many advantages of Linked Data.
Work towards an implementation of IEEE LOM in RDF has been started by [19], but this work was discontinued around 2004. For this reason Dublin Core [20] was considered and Dublin Core’s expression in RDF/XML [21], along with a further investigation of existing RDF Vocabularies, made up the final phase of the process of structuring mEducator’s conceptual model. Examples of these RDF Vocabularies includes SKOS[22], which was used to provide a standard way of representing controlled vocabularies in RDF defined within mEducator, and FOAF [23], which was used to describe people in RDF.

mEducator's Conceptual Model

 The conceptual model for the Learning Resource that was developed to be the basis of the mEducator schema is intended to:
1) Capture the semantics of the relationships (if any) among the metadata fields and the Learning Resource
2) Make evident the rationale of the design decisions in the schema
3) Identify potentially overlapping semantics in the metadata fields, and remove them in order to support the modular construction of metadata
4) Clearly locate the appropriate place for the development of mEducator-specific controlled vocabularies and taxonomies.

mEducator and RDF

Linked Open Data refers to data published on the Web in such a way that it is machine-readable, its meaning is explicitly defined, it is linked to other external data sets, and can in turn be linked to from external data sets [27] (Bizer, 2009). At the heart of the Linked Data approach are its core technologies, such as RDF for data representation and SPARQL as a standardised means to query RDF stores via HTTP.
The first step towards implementing mEducator’s metadata schema in RDF was to define its RDF Model [28]. This RDF model comes out of the conceptual model described in the previous section. More specifically, all the metadata fields included in the conceptual model become properties in the RDF Model. Each property should have a value i.e. the property title can have the value “cardiology”. Generally speaking, the type of value a property can take varies from a plain string, (datatype properties) to a more complex object composed of a group of properties and values (object properties). In order to describe more complicated values or to describe a value whose type is not described by an existing class (e.g. String) it is necessary to define classes. Thus the need to define a new class for a property is dependent on the type of the value that property can take.
Another component that was defined within the RDF Model is controlled vocabularies. A controlled vocabulary is a vocabulary consisting of a “prescribed list of terms or headings, each one having an assigned meaning, and provide a way to organize knowledge for subsequent retrieval" [29]. Controlled vocabularies are, in other words, another type of value that a property can take.

You can find below links to RDF files regarding the schema and the controlled vocabularies:

Acknowledgments

There are so many people who have contributed to this work, most of which are members of mEducator's Technical Reference Group. Thanks to the enthusiasm and the intelligence of people involved in this working group mEducator's metadata description scheme wouldn't have been today where it is. Speciial acknowledgments go to Daniela Giordano and her general scientific coordination and to Eleni Kaldoudi who have both highly contributed to the conceptual model of this work. In addition, we would like aslo to acknowledge the valuable input from Stefan Dietze and Harry Q. Yu. whose feedback regarding Linked Data encouraged the shifting of this work towards RDF. Quite helpful was the remarkable contribution of Stathis Konstantinidis and Charalampos Bratsas during at all stages of this work. It worth also referer the active members of Technical Reference Group Concetto, Nikolas Dovrolis, Teodor Stefanut and Alvaro Salva. A special thanks also to Valerie Smoothers from Medbiquitous about her input to the conceptual analysis of this specification.
