Metadata is descriptive information you add to content you upload to the LOR. It makes learning objects easier to find, especially when you share them!

Adding metadata transforms your learning object from an item you uploaded to a valuable digital resource within your district library of curated content. Depending on what you uploaded, there may be quite a few options for adding metadata. Some of them are pretty basic and others are a little more advanced. It may not be necessary to add all types of metadata to each object. Focus on information that will help you and others understand what the item is and how it can be used in the curriculum. So remember, upload and then metatag your learning object to make them SMART!
