Abstract

Abstract: Development of metadata (data about data) can be challenging because the vocabulary needs to be reliable yet flexible and extensible, locally relevant yet widely applicable and interoperable, and both machine and human readable. This article describes the process of creating "grounded metadata" for education, by engaging experts from technical assistance organizations, and the challenges the project faced. An initial ontology for educational technical assistance resources that resulted was then used to catalogue resources for dissemination via the Semantic Web.
