I agree that such internal linking system can be integrated with the image linking, which in fact is just another object in the system. Please follow the same logic then.

Since this should work in the same way adding link to an image, can you generalize this. This is very important without which internal linkage does not happen. The schema already supports it, but the UI does not.

It should be possible to create a link (and relation) from within a Learning Object to other objects in the composite object, i.e. the course.

An example should clarify this. When the user wants to make a reference to a term which is defined in the glossary, s/he should be able to select the glossary term from a list and insert a relation and hyperlink to the term. When browsing the course, one can then follow the link to see the definition of the glossary term. In case of exporting the LO, the link should be rebuilt to maintain its validity.

Therefore I request to include into the course editor's interface a way to insert a relation to existing objects, which presents a list of the existing objects within the course, such as tests, references, FAQ's, glossary terms and lessons or chapters within the course.
