 Enriching Content 

  • Three different approaches

MELT will include three different approaches to creating new and better metadata:

  1. Expert or trained indexers will enrich some MELT content;
  2. Teachers will be provided with ‘folksonomy’ and ‘social tagging’ tools so that they can add their own metadata to MELT content they have used;
  3. Automatic metadata generation techniques and tools will also be applied to increase the quantity of metadata.

The key goal in the project is to create a new ‘metadata ecology’ involving all three elements.
