This paper addresses the problem of adaptation of E-Learning to a given or proposed context. Current learning technology standards are available for various purposes, such as contents, learner profiles or learning activities, but there are no specifications to describe the context of learning scenarios. Such a description is crucial to identify change-requirements or to compare situations when learning scenarios are re-used. In this paper, we define a specification of context metadata. We show how they can be used to adapt learning scenarios from a given to a new context, in particular to identify change requirements for the internationalization of learning scenarios.
