What is a Learning Object, Technically?
Ip, Albert; Morrison, Iain; Currie, Mike
After analyzing the reuse of learning resources from different pedagogical paradigms, this paper argues that there is a gap between the learning technology community and the education community. The pedagogical paradigms described include: tutorial, drill, and practice; case method; goal-based learning; learning by designing; World Wide Web-based role-play simulation; distributed problem-based learning; critical incident-based computer supported learning; role-based simulation; exploratory learning; cognitive tool; and resource-based learning environment. The terms "learning resource" or "learning object" are not native to the education community. The education community is not interested in issues of reuse, grain size, technical properties, or "learning object." The paper suggests that a way forward is to have a clear demarcation of responsibility between learning technologists, subject matter experts, and instructional designers. (Contains 49 references.)
