  3. 3. What is a Learning Object?One of the main advantages while delivering an E-Learning is the opportunity to manage Learning Objects according to the actual training purposes. The same Learning Object can be adapted to different kind of courses. Definition: A Learning Object is a modular resource, usually digital and web-based, that can be used and re-used to support learning activities. Let’s see how is composed a typical Learning Object www.docebo.com
  4. 4. TitleThe Learning Object title has to be meaningful, and able to catch the students’ attention. Ex. Write a presentation letter with Microsoft Word. www.docebo.com
  5. 5. SubtitleThe subtitle introduces the topic of the Learning Object by usingvarious strategies: you can be ironic, engaging, or catch the attention with an exclamation or a question. Ex. Write a presentation letter with Microsoft Word: How should I introduce myself? www.docebo.com
  6. 6. Training Purpose It is important to communicate the training purpose of each lesson in a clear way.Remember: each Learning Object has to be focused on a single, specific training purpose. www.docebo.com
  7. 7. Learning Object IndexThis index is intended to give more information about the path the students will be following to achieve the specific training objective. It may also be useful to tell the students how much time is requested in order to complete each lesson. www.docebo.com
  8. 8. Logical Map This map shows a visual version of the previous index. By this way, students are able to understand the logical map of thewhole learning process, as well as the logical connections among the Learning Object contents. www.docebo.com
  9. 9. ContentWhile managing the content of a Learning Object, you have to take care about the “logic” that is used to transmit the message. This logic can be deductive or inductive. What’s the difference?Deductive method: it is used to transmit strong and clear concepts. Usually includes also descriptive examples and practical cases. Inductive method: starting from the description of different and specific situations, it’s possible to go back to a specific concept. www.docebo.com
  10. 10. Self Test It helps the students to verify their learning level.A self test is not intended to give score, but feedback: by this way, the students are able to learn from their mistakes. It is also important share more information with the users, so they are able to find additional contents before repeating the lesson. www.docebo.com
  11. 11. Final TestIt’s important to define goals, questions typology – true/false, multiple choice, etc. – and how the score is assigned. www.docebo.com
