Nowadays there are a good number of learning resources on the Internet. Their metadata descriptions are presented in RDF/XML as well as in pure XML. As a matter of fact, very few RDF-based metadata tools exist. To build flexible and open e-learning systems, it is required to combine IEEE-LOM with other new and existing metadata standards. As a result, metadata mapping between diverse metadata schemes is an important design goal. In this paper we present a novel Multimedia Learning Object Metadata Management and Mapping tool. MMLOM3 is a distributed RDF-based metadata management tool, which supports learning object metadata authoring, editing, as well as data querying and storing based on RDF binding. In addition to these basic metadata management functions, MMLOM3 encompasses two key features: metadata transformation from XML binding to RDF binding and vice versa; and semantic mapping between metadata schemes.
