Version Key

Project Links Module Version Number Assignment

The IMS Metadata Specification requires that a version number be assigned to each learning resource. The version number must be between 0 and 1000.

Feel free to investigate and use any module, but unless it has at least a green indicator proceed with caution. 
The red, orange, and gray modules will likely have broken or old links, and may have malfunctioning applets. Content might be sparse.

Here is how you can interpret Project Links version numbers:
