ABSTRACT The presented document introduces the work carried out in the management of digital information as learning objects. To introduce the full process done over the original documentation, some stages like recovery, manipulation, unification, labeling, and processing of digital files have been implemented. The developed process has been deployed for the management and organization of education and engineering conferences TAEE (Technologies Applied to Electronics Teaching) and EDUCON (IEEE Education Conference). The developed process has consisted of the creation of digital objects and documents and the use of those created in order to use them through educational scopes. Some work in relation to the labeling of those objects has been based on the generation of XML definition files attached to the digital objects. Once a set of data- metadata has been implemented, the spread of the collected and indexed information through? multiple environments is possible. Thus, these units of information let the implementation of web environments, the study and analysis of their contents and the creation of file structures for their upload in repositories in a massive way. As such, the institutional repository e-Spacio UNED from the Spanish University for Distance Education has been selected to hold contain the mentioned structure of files.

    ABSTRACT: Creating, cataloguing and distributing high quality learning contents requires a significant investment of resources and time. Nowadays information technology applied as a tool in education has drastically reduced these efforts. It makes it possible to share, use and exchange digital documents under certain conditions specified by the author without any cost. Furthermore, the use of standards can improve development and reutilization. Learning objects are the new paradigm developed for spreading knowledge and increasing interoperability through metadata.

    ABSTRACT: Metadata (data about data) are expected to give information about objects for the purpose of finding, managing and using of them more effec-tively. Diferent kinds of metadata has been applied to the e-learning field. Yet, being so many players in the field of the e-learning brings a lot of metadata standars so that the targets above mentioned are difficult to meet. For instance, reusability is quite difficult to get if every standard is using different identifiers. We need to develop a comparative scheme in order to find the differences and similarities at least in the most famous standars in order to be able to translate one standard into another. In this paper we have chosen the standards SCORM and Dublin Core for comparing each to other. Due to SCORM has other elemts like the Run Time Enviroment, we will focus just in the metadata structure of both standars.
