Acquiring a critical mass of pedagogical elements is a condition sine qua non for reuse. One of the main obstacles to attain a large amount of documents is the difficulty in creating associated metadata. Accurate metadata contain a considerable number of attributes. Assigning correct values toeach of these attributes is a tedious task and few users arewilling to invest considerable time to do this. Automatic indexation of learning objects could solve this problem. Furthermore, it could help to create more consistent metadata. In this paper, we discuss several issues for the development of an automated indexation system for IEEE LTSC Learning Object Metadata.
