This paper describes how Topic Maps, as a representative standard in the field of the Semantic Web, can be used to describe eLearning related metadata. SCORM (Sharable Content Object Model) is one of the most extensive standards for describing eLearning systems, with LOM (Learning Objects Metadata) as a metadata description standard. After introducing the main constructs of Topic Maps and SCORM (LOM), we will compare these two metadata standards and outline the benefits of using Topic Maps. A couple of examples, related to a course at the University of Vienna, will illustrate the advantages of using Topic Maps for eLearning systems.
