Learning objects offer a new conceptualization of the learning process: rather than the traditional “several hour chunk”, they provide smaller, self-contained, re-usable units of learning.
- Are self-contained – each learning object can be taken independently
- Are reusable – a single learning object may be used in multiple contexts for multiple purposes
- Can be aggregated – learning objects can be grouped into larger collections of content, including traditional course structures
- Are tagged with metadata – every learning object has descriptive information allowing it to be easily found by a search.
Here are 4 Learning Objects, they can be used either by individuals or as part of a structured curriculum.
Information is presented using easy-to-read text and interactive games.
