Introduction

The aim of this page is to define the LOM application profile for Moodle courses (MoodleCore).

It's based on IEEE 1484.12.1-2002 LOM FINAL DRAFT STANDARD.

"An application profile is an assemblage of metadata elements selected from one or more metadata schemas and combined in a compound schema. Application profiles provide the means to express principles of modularity and extensibility. The purpose of an application profile is to adapt or combine existing schemas into a package that is tailored to the functional requirements of a particular application, while retaining interoperability with the original base schemas".
