LRMI survey educators providers

Jun 13, 2012

SURVEYS SAY: Educators want better ways to locate useful tools on the web, and on the flip side, providers on the other side want better discoverability for their goods. Providing such a meeting ground, of course, is the main purpose of the Learning Resource Metadata Initiative (LRMI), which conducted this survey. Nearly half of the publishers and providers reported dissatisfaction with product visibility, and 66% of educators reported getting "irrelevant results." Both sides agreed that the most important criteria would consist of: 1) content/subject; 2) grade level; 3) standards alignment. Full results to be released later this month.
