When a critical mass of learning resources is described or “tagged” in a standard, machine-readable manner, everyone benefits.
- Search engines can return more relevant, richer results.
- Educators and learners can discover and compare learning materials pertinent to their immediate learning situation.
- Publishers of learning materials can have their content surface above the mass of web pages with seemingly relevant keywords, but no useful learning value.
- Education technology developers can build applications that leverage a now well-described universe of learning materials, further increasing the value of said materials to all stakeholders, including educators, learners, publishers, schools, governments, and the general public.
