Nowadays there is a large and increasing body of learning objects stored on the Web. Some of them reside in different learning repositories, such as the MERLOT repository [1], the Education Network Australia (EDNA) [2], and the Connexions repository [3]. Fedora is an acronym for Flexible Extensible Digital Object Repository Architecture [4]. Fedora's flexibility makes it capable of serving as a digital repository for a variety of use cases, including digital asset management, institutional repositories, digital archives, content management systems, scholarly publishing enterprises and digital libraries [5]. Many universities and companies around the world are using Fedora as a valid approach to manage their increasing knowledge. This document proposes an extension of the Fedora Commons repository which is composed by: A web editing module based on the ISO/IEC 24751-3 Digital Resource Description (DRD) [6] standard in order to label learning objects from the Fedora repository to provide them with accessible characteristics and on the other hand a web editing module to label learning objects from the Fedora Repository based on the IEEE Learning Object Metadata (LOM) [7] standard. Our approach offers institutions the possibility of labelling their learning objects in an accessible way, in order to facilitate the process of delivering the educational resources and the adaptive instructional design adjusted to the special needs of users.
