Introduction to CanCore
The CanCore Metadata Initiative assists project implementers and indexers
in the development of high-quality systems
and records to support the use and reuse of digital learning objects.
These educational or learning objects can be as simple as individual
web pages, video clips, or interactive presentations, or as comprehensive
as full lessons, courses or training programs.
CanCore has been working with an expanding community of implementers
since November 2000. It provides guidelines for all
of the elements in the Learning Object Metadata standard, and identifies
a sub-set of these elements for their special utility in resource description
CanCore has been developed with input from educators and technology
developers, and from Canadian projects and implementations internationally.
The CanCore Initiative is currently funded by the e-Learning Marketplace Strategy Group of Industry Canada's e-Learning Directorate, and supported by TeleUniversite
and Athabasca University. Funding and support has also been provided
by CANARIE, Alberta Learning, Netera Alliance, TeleCampus.edu, and the
Electronic Text Centre at the University of New Brunswick.
CanCore is represented by a network of experts working in both official
languages at locations across Canada:
