Gooru Metadata Schema
Resources are reviewed at the “domain” level for many metadata fields, including editorial tags. In order to capture and communicate each resource’s relevance for partners and teachers across the globe, we developed the Gooru Metadata Schema, a comprehensive structure that determines how content will appear and be discoverable in the Gooru platform and via APIs.
