61 <p>Educational material is not only about services -- text-like material
62 like tutorials, worked-out use cases, or textbook-like material is at
63 least as important. Within the VO community, there is a large body of
64 such material for a wide variety of audiences ranging from pre-school to
65 researchers (TODO: cite AIDA, EuroVO, VAO works).</p>
67 <p>To date, such material has been collected informally by the various
68 projects on plain web pages. It was, in consequence, hard to find it.
69 Also, locating editable forms of such texts -- which has been found to
70 be necessary fairly regularly -- has been at least difficult; while
71 representing source-product relationships is in principle in the domain
72 of provenance and thus not in scope for the registry, in the case of
73 texts the relation is so simple and its representation so useful that we
74 propose to include it in a simple registry extension covering text-like
75 material, dubbed DocRegExt in the following.</p>
77 <p>The VO already has a registry extension for standards, which of
78 course are also text-like (<cite>[<a href="#std:STDREGEXT">std:STDREGEXT</a>]</cite>). This extension,
79 however, focuses on metadata important for standards -- e.g.,
80 vocabularies and status -- that is not pertinent for educational
81 material. Conversely, it is not concerned with document language (which
82 can safely be assumed to be English for standards), and it disregards
83 the issue of document formats, which for educational material is
84 important.</p>
86 <div class="section"><h3><a id="regext-usecases" shape="rect"><span class="secnum">3.1. </span>Use Cases</a></h3>
88 <p>The design of DocRegExt has been guided by the desire to fulfill the
89 following use cases:</p>
91 <ul><li>Is there a tutorial covering discovering intermediate mass black
92 holes? (Standard VOResource is sufficient)</li><li>Is there a tutorial covering working with X-Ray data? (Standard
93 VOResource is sufficient)</li><li>Is there a tutorial dealing with Planets suitable for school use?
94 (Standard VOResource is sufficient)</li><li>Is there a tutorial dealing with Planets suitable for school use in
95 Italian? (That requires the declaration of the document language)</li><li>What are the subjects of maintained (in the sense of: probably
96 working in the VO as found by the students) tutorials?
97 (The active flag of standard VOResource is
98 unsuitable here since even outdated resources will still be accessible;
99 therefore, we introduce the maintained flag)</li><li>Are there tutorials using redshifts? (This is solved by allowing
100 table metadata in DocRegExt)</li><li>Where can I find an editable version of tutorial ivo://auth/tut1?
101 (This is solved by allowing multiple access URLs with different content
102 types, which should be sufficient to allow answering the question)</li><li>Are there translations of tutorial ivo://auth/tut2? (This is covered
103 by the recommendations on declaring relationships between text-like
104 resources)</li><li>Is there material using service ivo://auth/svc1? (Again, declaring
105 relationships covers this use case)</li><li>Is there material about something visible tonight? (In principle,
106 allowing the coverage element withing DocRegExt resources would allow
107 answering the question; in reality, few registries expose this
108 information in useable form)</li></ul>
