ISO/IEC 19788-1: A metadata framework


The ISO/IEC 19788 family, also known as Metadata for Learning Resources, was created to categorize resources in learning, education, and training contexts. It comprises various parts, such as Part 1: Framework (19788-1), initially specifying how to describe learning resources. Its broader applications have made it a horizontal standard for all ISO/IEC JTC1 standards groups promoting the interoperability of descriptions. The paper, written by editors of the standard, overviews 19788-1’s most essential aspects focusing on its underlying principles (such as multilingual or cultural diversity or technical neutrality) and the specification of entities involved in the description of resources (such as properties or application profiles), leaving out less pertinent details for a general presentation.
