Evaluating Learning Objects for Schools
Haughey, Margaret; Muirhead, Bill
E-Journal of Instructional Science and Technology, v8 n1 2005
In the K-12 education sector, learning objects are seen as important in providing quality resources for teachers and learners but there has been little formal research on the assessment of learning objects based on the qualities that would be important for K-12 teachers. In this paper we describe the developments in the K-12 sector, the arguments around learning object characteristics and the development of an assessment profile. We applied this instrument in two separate analyses of learning objects and found it useful in identifying characteristics of importance to teachers. (Contains 1 figure.)
