Educational metadata schemas are obligated to provide learning-related attributes in learning objects. The examination of current educational metadata standards found that few of them have places for incorporating educational vocabulary. Even within the educational category of metadata standards there is a lack of learning-related vocabulary for characterizing attributes that can help users identify the type of learning, objective, or context. The paper also discussed the problems with examples from a learning object taxonomy compiled by the authors.
