Learning ObjectsWhat are they?

Three Prominent Characterizations

  • "modular digital resources, uniquely identified and metatagged, that can be used to support learning"

    • National Learning Infrastructure Initiative

  • "any digital resource that can be reused to support learning" 

    • David A. Wiley, "Connecting Learning Objects to Instructional Design Theory" 

      • "The main idea of 'learning objects' is to break educational content down into small chunks that can be reused in various learning environments, in the spirit of object-oriented programming"

  • "[A]ny entity, digital or non-digital, that may be used for learning, education or training"

    • IEEE 1484.12.1-2002, 15 July 2002, Draft Standard for Learning Object Metadata, IEEE Learning Technology Standards Committee (LTSC)
