The Internet is packed with resources which can be used for educational purposes, referred to as Learning Objects (LOs). Locating the LO which is best suited for your educational purposes can be extremely challenging. This since the context surrounding the LO in regards to intended user group, educational level etc. are not included in the resource. The SCORM standard has changed this by including contextual metadata as part of the resource. However, SCORM LOs are scarcely created, much as a result of high knowledge and time requirements needed for creating the necessary metadata. This research has been using Automatic Metadata Generation tools to assist in the metadata creation process, enabling LOs to share common contextual metadata while receiving additional high quality LO specific metadata without the need for manual metadata creation efforts.
