Designing Learning Objects for Online Learning
he phrase “learning object” (LO) comes from the idea of objectoriented programming, where parts of computer code are reused for various software applications. This concept was transferred to re-purposing content for different learning situations. Traditionally, open and distance-learning (ODL) content is designed as a large course that does not lend itself to potential reuse. But with a LO approach, content is designed as smaller units of learning that support potential reuse, that can stand alone, and that can be made accessible to meet the “just enough” and “just-in-time” requirements of learners.
