Since IEEE LTSC LOM was published in 2002, it is one of the widest adopted standard for the description of educational resources. The GLOBE (Global Learning Objects Brokered Exchange) alliance enables share and reuse between several Learning Object Repositories worldwide. Being the largest and more diverse collection of Learning Object Metadata, it is an ideal place to perform an analysis of the actual use of the LOM standard in the real world. This paper presents an in-depth analysis of the use and quality of 630.317 metadata instances.
