The Design, Development, and Use of Multimedia Learning Objects
Bradley, Claire; Boyle, Tom
Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, v13 n4 p-371-389 spec iss 2004
This paper concerns the development and use of learning objects to address a real and urgent educational problem--the teaching and learning of introductory programming. The paper outlines the design principles and development process involved in creating self-contained learning objects that are pedagogically rich. It describes how the objects were deployed within a blended-learning approach to course delivery and gives examples of objects developed and how they have been used by students and teaching staff. Full evaluation of the project has been undertaken; data is presented that shows an improvement in pass rates, and how the objects have been received. Finally, the paper discusses the contribution to building a model for well-designed learning objects. (Contains 6 figures.)
