E-learning objects should be appropriately described and classified using standard metadata for facilitating the processes of e-learning resource description, discovery and reuse. These metadata need to be published in a registry to reduce duplication of effort and enhance semantic interoperability. This paper describes how standard ebXML registries can be used for annotating, storing, discovering and retrieving e-learning object metadata. For semantic annotation of e-learning objects, IEEE LOM is adopted as the metadata ontology. In order to support the e-learning metadata ontology in interoperable ebXML registries, a mapping scheme between LOM and ebXML information model is proposed. The usefulness of standard ebXML registries for sharing e-learning metadata is demonstrated by prototyping an e-learning registry called ebRR4LOM based on the scheme.
