- Three different approaches
MELT will include three different approaches to creating new and better metadata:
- Expert or trained indexers will enrich some MELT content;
- Teachers will be provided with ‘folksonomy’ and ‘social tagging’ tools so that they can add their own metadata to MELT content they have used;
- 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.
