Summary
Summary multimedia-rich, inter-active Earth science learning applications: educational objects and synergy

  • educational objects are standalone software “chunks”

  • reused and recombined to produce learning applications

  • two roles for educators

    • developers: creates primary objects

    • users: produce secondary objects

  • Earth science needs object dissemination method
