Learning Objects--Instructional Metadata and Sequencing.
The main focus of current discussions within the standardization process of learning technology is on economical opportunities and technical aspects of learning objects. There has been little discussion about the instructional or didactical issues. The purpose of this paper is to conceptualize a taxonomy of learning objects for the facilitation of reusable instructional navigation patterns. Discussion includes the vision--a marketplace of knowledge and education; the current situation with the Web and the role of metadata; standardization initiatives; a hierarchy of learning objects; different types of knowledge units and the types of knowledge in the receptive knowledge units (orientation, explanation, action, and source knowledge); and generic navigational structures based upon the hierarchy concept and didactical typification to support learning processes.
