Abstract: Learning resources metadata is a large research area. Standards have been developed, including IEEE LOM, SCORM and the Dublin Core Metadata initiative. This paper discusses these standards and development issues. The SCORM model can be extended in a number of ways and this research describes how this is possible. The paper then discusses the metadata design for the learning resources within an e-learning platform (Peter, Bacon and Dastbaz 2008). This e-learning platform is designed to offer personalisation and adaptability for the learner. The system metadata has been designed to enable effective searches of the learning resources which will then enable the system to offer personalised learning resources for the learner. The issues considered when designing this metadata are discussed within this paper.
