The Schema Course extension Community Group has been launched:
This mission of this group, initiated by LRMI, is to develop an extension for schema.org concerning the discovery of any type of educational course (online/offline, long/short, scheduled/on-demand). Educational course is defined as “some sequence of events and/or creative works which aims to build the knowledge, competence or ability of learners”. (Out of scope: information about students and their progression etc; information needed internally for course management rather than discovery).
This is a community initiative. This group was originally proposed on 2015-12-10 by Phil Barker. The following people supported its creation: Phil Barker, Dan Brickley, Richard Wallis, Stuart Sutton, Eva Méndez. W3C’s hosting of this group does not imply endorsement of the activities.
We invite you to share news of this new group in social media and other channels.
If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
