Learning objects are essentially digital content elements – of a diverse kind – described by metadata records. Nonetheless, current metadata standards do neglect the fact that different kinds of objects require different, specialized metadata description schemas. The provision of types for learning objects satisfies such requirement and it would also eventually ease pedagogical selection. In this paper, the concept of type of learning object is described as an explicit or implicit realization of typing inside ontological structures. Explicit types are described as a mean to define specialized metadata elements, and implicit types are used for the addition of descriptive categorization dimensions not necessarily requiring specialized metadata properties.
