The official, citable version of the LRMI 1.1 specification has been moved to its new home on the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) website at the following URL: http://dublincore.org/dcx/lrmi-terms/. A temporary, informative version of the 1.1 specification appears below.
|Table 1. LRMI Additions to Schema.org/CreativeWork|
|educationalAlignment||schema.org/AlignmentObject||An alignment to an established educational framework.|
|educationalUse||schema.org/Text||The purpose of the work in the context of education.
|Approximate or typical time it takes to work with or through this learning resource for the typical intended target audience.
|typicalAgeRange||schema.org/Text||The typical range of ages the content’s intended end user.
|interactivityType||schema.org/Text||The predominant mode of learning supported by the learning resource. Acceptable values are active, expositive, or mixed.

|useRightsUrl||schema.org/URL||The URL where the owner specifies permissions for using the resource.|
|isBasedOnUrl||schema.org/URL||A resource that was used in the creation of this resource. This term can be repeated for multiple sources.|
A note on useRightsUrl: this property was not adopted by schema.org. Subsequently schema.org adopted a property called license which encompasses the same functions as useRightsUrl (see below). The license property is likely to be more widely understood by consumers of schema.org mark-up than the LRMI useRightsUrl property.
