Add additional metadata fields and expose them through the RSS feed and RDF view

From Kathleen at UMich:

I am working with our publication director Susan Topol on exporting some of our metadata to OER Commons. I know that we have RDF feeds for each course, e.g. http://michdev.educommons.net/school-of-information/information-economics-w07/rdf. A lot of the metadata that we need is in that RDF feed, but there are some additional fields that we would like. For example, we'd like to include the course ID, term, structure and level that are in the edit course page (see attached screenshot). We'd also like to be able to indicate which types of materials (in our case these are the titles of our subpages within the course) are included in the course, e.g. syllabi, reading list, assignments, etc.

Are there any properties or templates in educommons that we could update to make these changes?

From Robert at OUNL:

The question for the Course duration came up because for a European project some collegues of mine were looking at a PMH/OAI-target to collect the metadata from OpenER and they were using the rss-feed for this.

Also adding a field in the RSS to specify which department/division the course is listed in.

Change History

comment:1 Changed 5 years ago by dray

Added metadata via the following fields:

ec:course_id ec:term ec:structure ec:level

Unfortunately, creating either a generic indicator for course content types or a specific application for this use case is outside of the scope of this release.
