The metadata elements in e-learning domain provide some meaning about the metadata content. But the current existing metadata standards are not providing fully educative support information and also they are not completely suitable enough to integrate Semantic Web technologies into e-learning domain.

Along with this we investigate the existing standards and possible approaches to strengthen e-learning metadata.
