This paper discusses how learning resources can take advantage of the Semantic Web. As the W3C, we consider RDF as the first step to the Semantic Web. However, in spite of its advantages, RDF is not used as widespread as it should be because using all its possibilities is not that simple. For example, constructing an RDF schema for a given metadata schema and querying a set of RDF descriptions using distinct schemas are the main problems we discuss here. For learning resources, even if the LOM (Learning Object Metadata), the IEEE standard for education, is widely used, it is not unique, and it doesn't exist an RDF schema for it.
