Although LO management is an interesting subject to study due to the current interoperability potential, it is not promoted very much because a number of issues remain to be resolved. LOs need to be designed to achieve educational goals, and the metadata schema must have the kind of information to make them reusable in other contexts. This paper presents a pilot project in the design, implementation and evaluation of learning objects in the field of university education, with a specific focus on the development of a metadata typology and quality evaluation tool, concluding with a summary and analysis of the end results.
