Abstract: Due to the continuously growing number of Learning Resources the automatic generation of metadata has become an important research issue. Lifecycle information like relations resulting from reuse of Learning Resources can be utilised to support users, for example, in retrieving relevant documents. However, this kind of information is neglected by most systems. We show that lifecycle information can be obtained automatically without user interaction. We describe the challenges that have to be faced when capturing lifecycle information in office applications and present how we met them in the implementation of add-ins for our LIS.KOM framework. The results of first evaluations are promising.
