Abstract
The learning object meta-data (LOM) is an emerging standard for annotation of educational entities (digital or non-digital) that are relevant to technology-supported learning. The annotations describe educational, legal, and technical characteristics of these resources. Development of this standard is sponsored by the IEEE Learning Technology Standards Committee. In this paper, we describe an application of the LOM to the construction of a database of resources available to schools in Hawaii and report on both successes and issues encountered. Recommendations are made concerning modifications to the LOM and adoption of the LOM by others working in primary and secondary school contexts.
