Valerie and Daniela talked by phone and came up with the following proposal for the group's consideration.

1.       Change activityFormat in healthcare lom to activityOrResourceFormat. Add source and id attributes so that we can point to vocabularies, including the mEducator vocabulary for Resource type and the Curriculum Inventory Vocabularies for Instructional Methods and Assessment Methods.

2.       Add values from mEducator MediaType to the healthcare lom vocabulary for learningResourceType.


Our intention is to separate the format of interaction from the technical format of the resource or activity. We can cite both the mEducator vocabulary and Curriculum Inventory vocabulary as possible sources of activityOrResourceFormat values. And we can integrate appropriate values from other members (VA and MedEdPORTAL) into any new vocabularies created for learning resource type.
