The purpose of ISO/IEC 23127 is to offer a metadata structure to store, present and exchange Online Learning Facilitator (OLF) information by specifying the data elements and their attributes to describe facilitator’s information on various kinds of online education platforms.
In this standard, a generic information model of Online Learning Facilitator (OLF) is given to describe relevant information that applies to the facilitation and training services provided online, and includes information about the person offering facilitation, the affiliation of the person, facilitation ability, facilitation practices, the facilitation service offered, learners’ reviews and testimonies, and related social network information. The conceptual data model specified by this standard allows the linguistic diversity of OLF information attributes and offers a flexible metadata schema to describe them.
As for the metadata with privacy, it is suggested to use Application Profile in ISO/IEC 19788-1 to tag data elements concerning privacy and define them with conditions. Although this standard provides suggestions on how to designate metadata elements that require privacy protection, it does not provide detailed methods or techniques with regard to how to implement privacy protection measures. OLF information privacy protection methods and techniques, such as Privacy-by-Design, can be selected and applied as needed by implementers.
