@ottonomy Yes that is my ultimate goal. I asked around at #oer18 it looks like a group met around 2013 and wrote some standards around metadata. Looked at @moodle metadata standards as well.
I have my repos up now, but not publishing to gh-pages yet. Maybe I should.
My ultimate goal is to have one file for each module and not have to update my syllabus and course websites separately.
I also commonly (and this is just my fault) make quick changes to website without changing files in my repo. Just log into CPanel.
I might be leaning more towards microformats just because I can wrap my head around it, and I'd rather build around a community than Google.
