Announcer: The e-Learning Lingo Podcast.

Mary Kay Lofurno: Hello! This is Mary Kay Lofurno, Marketing Director here at SyberWorks. Welcome to the 57th episode of the e-Learning Lingo podcast series. Last week, Dave Powell discussed Netiquette.

This week, Dave Powell will explain a term used in Knowledge Management, e-Learning and a lot of other areas. The term is “metadata.” So, I ask you, do you know your e-Learning Lingo?

Mary Kay: Hi, Dave. Tell us about metadata.

David Powell: Metadata, or “data about data,” is information that provides details about a course object, such as its author, subject, title, content, summary, and creation date. Typically, in the context of e-Learning, metadata is recorded xml files and read by learning management systems and learning content management systems.

Mary Kay Lofurno: Thanks, Dave. Have a great afternoon.

David Powell: You too. Talk with you soon.

Mary Kay Lofurno: This is Mary Kay Lofurno, Marketing Director at SyberWorks. Thanks for listening to the 57th episode of the e-Learning Lingo Podcast.

This week, Dave Powell discussed metadata. The episode 57 podcast audio and transcript will be posted on the e-Learning Lingo Podcast blog.
