OER Schema is a standard vocabulary of pedagogical terminology embedded in the metadata of Open Education Resource (OER) course content. This project was developed to tackle existing issues regarding the usage and authoring of OER content including readying content for search engine indexing, easily obtaining, combining, and editing OER content, extending semantic web vocabularies to understand pedagogical terminology, maintaining the varied licenses associated associated with OER content, and more. With this standard vocabulary, anyone can produce and publish entirely remixable course content through easy to use web tools, thereby making OER more interoperable, easier to index, and easier find and adapt for varied pedagogical needs.
