Metadata in DITA Learning Object Metadata difculty, type of interaction, intended end user role, learning time Prole-based (@audience, @product, @platform etc.) & in topics and maps Semantic markup Specialisation of DITA to create new metadata or semantic markup Classication of content using subject schemes and subject referencing 23. Requirements of DITA Content Server Understand DITA content native DITA support congurable index content full text metadata Deliver content appropriate for application HTML, DITA, graphics search for content query metadata! Web-based APIs 24. Summary Companies are now ready and willing to explore new opportunities in DITA-based mobile learning proof of concepts Recent technologies and standards in DITA and Learning can facilitate development of combined learning solutions No constraints in how content is delivered to mobile Metadata in source content is key to any solution 25. @markposton | @mekonltd | @ditaweb http://linkedin.com/uk/markposton !
