In SoftChalk LessonBuilder 6, a common authoring tool for digital learning objects, there is a feature that enables adding of metadata (information about information) details about that learning object that align with accessibility, academic, and Dublin Core metadata standards.

The Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching (MERLOT) is a referatory that points to various digital learning objects hosted on the Web and Internet. (A “referatory” points to online objects, whereas a “repository” actually contains the digital learning objects.)
Membership to this referatory is free. Members may link to their own publicly available online digital learning objects if those are hosted on a publicly accessible site.
