A Metadata Model Proposal for Simulation Based E-learning

El Hassan Laaziz, Elmustapha Elkhouzai


Existing E-learning standards and specifications present a great basis for the development of E-learning, on line and distance learning contents that are accessible, interoperable, durable and reusable.  E-learning contents are supported by these standards as well as by the LMS (Learning Management System) �  or web technologies compliant to them. However, simulation based contents or learning objects are less integrated in the E-learning contents than other learning objects, partially because standards and specification don’t pay much attention to more specify them in term of metadata requirements.

The main objective of this paper is the elaboration of a new Metadata model on the basis of Learning Object Metadata (LOM) with a wider scope that could support more easily simulation objects, especially in experiential E-learning content in which simulation activity should be executed by the learner, monitored and tracked by the tutor completely on the LMS.
