The purpose of this study was to develop a questionnaire to measure student teachers' perception of digital learning objects. The participants included 308 voluntary senior students attending courses in a college of education of a public university in Turkey. The items were extracted to their related factors by the principal axis factoring method. The results showed a 3 factor solution: Perceived Educational Merit, Perceived Use and Development in the Class, and Perceived Accessibility. Descriptive results revealed that preservice teachers think learning objects are easy to develop, use, and access; have an educational value; and are useful in teaching and learning. Replications with different samples are recommended to enhance and validate the questionnaire. Similar studies are also recommended to reveal innovative uses of learning objects in teacher education. (Contains 4 tables and 1 figure.)
