Moving from Theory to Practice in the Design of Web-Based Learning Using a Learning Object Approach
Murphy, Elizabeth
E-Journal of Instructional Science and Technology, v7 n1 2004
This paper describes the design of a web-based learning module. The aim in the design was to operationalize the concepts of granularity, reusability, scalability, and interoperability as they relate to learning objects. The prototypical module was designed for contexts where identifying and solving ill-structured problems is relevant. The module consists of an aggregation of learning objects including video segments, a bibliography and discussion forum activities. The module specifies an instructional sequence through reliance on a problem-solving model. Two rounds of module testing using WebCT[TM] were conducted. The module represents one perspective on operationalizing concepts related to learning objects. (Contains 1 table.)
