During the past years a number of international efforts have led to the development of the IEEE LOM standard as a commonly accepted way for describing educational resources, facilitating storage, search and retrieval of these resources through web-based repositories. On the other hand, it was recognized early enough that it is not possible for a generic standard such as IEEE LOM to meet specific requirements and accommodate the particular needs of different educational communities. As a result, a practice of generating Application Profiles (APs) of the IEEE LOM has emerged and a number of different APs have been developed worldwide. However, despite the widespread development of APs it seems that a limited number of software tools exist, aiming to support the process of IEEE LOM Application Profiling. Moreover, these tools have a number of limitations, adding extra barriers to their users in this process. In this paper, we target addressing this problem by introducing a new web-based tool (ASK-LOM-AP) that aims to overcome the identified limitations and simplify the process of developing and managing IEEE LOM APs for different educational communities.
