  Support searches like "A course that covers linked data in the USA"

    Types: "AlignmentObject"
       http://schema.org/AlignmentObject

Proposal:
  Thing > Intangible > Course[OfStudy?]
    PhysicalCourse (?)

Next Steps:
  Gather feedback on appropriate properties
    Should 'subjects' or 'topicsCovered' be freetext and/or URIs?

    Identify and work with LRMI expertise
      Is there a more intuitive way to describe a 'Course' with LRMI?
      What properties of Course would be good to have?
        educationalRole,
        educationalAlignment
