LOM: Life Cycle Contribute Role

Life Cycle: This category describes the history and current state of this learning object and those entities that have affected this learning object during its evolution.

Life Cycle Contribute: This specifies the those entities (i.e., people, organizations) that have contributed to the state of this learning object during its life cycle (e.g., creation, edits, publication). 

This data element is different from 3.3 Meta-Metadata Contribute. Contributions should be considered in a very broad sense here,as all actions that affect the state of the learning object.

Life Cycle Contribute Role: It gives the kind of contribution. The available choices are: 
  • Author 
  • Publisher 
  • Unknown
  • Initiator
  • Terminator
  • Validator
  • Editor
  • Graphical designer
  • Technical implementer
  • Content provider
  • Technical validator
  • Educational validator
  • Script writer
  • Instructional designer
  • Subject matter expert

Generally, if the selected value is "terminator" that means the entity that made the learning object unavailable.
