Description

Presented at SXSWEdu March 6, 2014
Austin, TX, USA

Sure, aligning commercial content to LRMI is becoming a standard for major publishers and those with deep pockets, but what about non-profits, museums, or research organizations? The Smithsonian will present their process for identifying resources, selecting teacher metadata creators, and implementing the code on their websites and into the Learning Registry. Attendees will learn how to develop effective methodologies to evaluate the impact on discoverability of LRMI-tagged content.
