Step 1 :Defining an LO

What is an LO?

Definition of the eWriting LO:

The LO is a one hour, self-contained, reusable unit of online instruction. It neither links out, nor does it depend on other LOs for pre or post instruction. It pre-tests students’ knowledge of the target concept, and measures learning through a post-test. It incorporates a variety of technology tools for online instruction and addresses all learning styles.
