Hello,

I just stumbled over the Open Educational Resources Schema W3C Community
[Group]. The group launched in June but obviously they are already
working on the [schema]. The group's chair Alex Boyce writes in a
[comment] the the goal would be "extending schema.org vocabulary to be
semantic to education". This looks very similar to what the LRMI task
group has been doing all along.

As far as I can see, there are not too much people working on these
things, so it would be best to prevent parallel efforts and collaborate
where possible. Also, having multiple standards to chose from isn't a
good thing to actually arrive at a shared standard.

Does anybody from the LRMI TG has contact to this group? Is there
exchange and maybe even collaboration between this group and LRMI?

All the best
Adrian

Good spot Adrian.

I don't know any of the people involved. I recall hearing about the oer
schema idea earlier this year, I am pretty usre it was Cable or one of
his CC colleagues who alerted me. I think I contacted Alex Boyce to
point out that their work was similar to LRMI and Schema Course Extend.
Sorry, I cannot remember the details.

Maybe we could arrange a meeting with them to compare aims?

It looks like the follow web-page is their home:
  http://oerschema.org
and they display a schema that looks fairly complementary to LRMI (in the direction of course organization and reporting).
