Metadata co-development: a process resulting in metadata about technical assistance to educators
Metadata development can be challenging because the vocabulary should be flexible and extensible, widely applicable, interoperable, and both machine and human readable. We describe how we engaged members of organizations in the field of technical assistance to educators in a process of metadata development, and the challenges we faced. The result was a an ontology for the communities of practice that is interoperable and can evolve; it was then used to catalogue resources for dissemination via the Semantic Web. Categories and Subject Descriptors K.3.1 [Computing Milieux]: Computer Uses in Education; E.0 [Data]: General General Terms Human Factors, Standardization, Languages Keywords Semantic Web, metadata, RDF, resource cataloging, education, technical assistance
