The OER metadata group functions as a forum for communication amongst interested and professional personnel in german-speaking areas that work with metadata in the field of open educational resources.
Relevant are all issues revolving around metadata, e.g. metadata standards (LOM, LRMI, etc.) and mappings, controlled vocabulary, conversion software, exchange reports, different kinds of metadata exposure (APIs, Linkes Open Data, etc.). The group primary aims an alignment of OER metadata in german-speaking regions and development of an recommendation for that issue.
