Abstract: This CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA) provides guidance on how to build application profiles for e-learning.

Application profiles enable “mixing and matching” metadata elements, in order to meet specific requirements for a particular context. As an example, some communities may want to make certain elements mandatory or restrict the value space of a particular element.

However, there is much confusion and only limited experience and expertise in the development and deployment of application profiles. That is why the CEN/ISSS Learning Technologies Workshop decided to develop guidelines on the use of application profiles for (e-)learning. This document is the concrete result of this work.

Although many of the guidelines presented in this document can be applied to any kind of application profile, the focus here is on application profiles for metadata, more specifically for learning object metadata. In addition, application profiles of other metadata standards, such as for instance the Learner Information Package (LIP), have also been considered.
