Semantic Composition of Learning Object Collections

Learning object collections may be developed by different people, teams, or organizations using different metadata. This paper explores the issues in composing collections by combining content and metadata. We describe an implementation of semantic composition in the context of a particular system, Dynamic Learning Experience, a web-based application that allows learners to query, assemble, and organize learning content into hypermedia learning paths.
