Abstract :

This article focuses on the lack of the centralization and the sharing of Digital Educational Resources (DER), in particular those in Arabic language, between higher education institutions intra- and inter-Arab countries. Also, it targets the sharing and reusing of these resources on a large scale at the regional or the international levels. Thus, a solution is proposed that aims at generalizing the standard practices of description and referencing of DER and to regroup them into a single repository. For that purpose, we will describe our contribution to the Moroccan application profile of the LOM, called (SupLOMMA)..

Keywords :

: Digital educational resources; referencing, metadata; LOM; application profile; interoperability.
