IMS Meta-data Specification - Version 1

Instructional Management Systems (IMS) recently released Meta-data Specification - Version 1 to the public. A collaborative effort between members of the IMS community worldwide and various organizations, the Specification is comprised of three documents, each in HTML or .pdf format. The first, IMS Learning Resource Meta-data Information Model, "describes the names, definitions, organization, and constraints of the IMS meta-data elements." The second, IMS Learning Resource Meta-data XML Binding, discusses XML basics and special requirements for handling meta-data elements. The final document, IMS Learning Resource Meta-data Best Practices and Implementation Guide, offers an overview of the IEEE Meta-data system, a discussion on the IMS Core Meta-data Elements and Structure, and the IMS Implementation Guide. A link to IMS XML Bindings, DTDs, and examples is also provided.
