The Professional and Education Training Task Group is the DCMI home for work being undertaken on the Linked Data for Professional Educators (LD4PE) project under the jurisdiction of the DCMI Education & Outreach Committee. LD4PE is funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). The intent is that this LD4PE website will continue to be supported by DCMI and its members as part of DCMI's larger education and outreach activities, and be used in other activities as appropriate once the project is completed.
The project is developing a Web-based Linked Data platform to support the structured discovery of the learning resources available online by open educational resource (OER) and commercial providers. At the heart of the Linked Data website is a competency framework for Linked Data that supports indexing learning resources according to the specific competencies, skills, and knowledge they address. To do this, the LD4PE website itself leverages Linked Data technology by assigning global identifiers (URIs) to statements of competency, then citing those URIs in metadata descriptions of learning resources.
The University of Washington is leading the development of the LD4PE platform and underlying technical and data infrastructure in partnership with Kent State University, the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI), Sungkyunkwan University Institute of Information and Management (Korea), OCLC, Elsevier, and Synaptica. Time frame for the project work is from December 1, 2014 through November 30, 2016.
