  • Open Educational Resources Toolkit – “What are Open Educational Resources” https://openeducationalresources.pbworks.com/w/page/24836860/What-are-Open-Educational-Resources“Whilst purely informational content has a significant role in learning and teaching, it is helpful to consider learning resources by their levels of granularity and to focus on the degree to which information content is embedded within a learning activity: Digital assets – normally a single file (e.g. an image, video or audio clip), sometimes called a ‘raw media asset’;Information objects – a structured aggregation of digital assets, designed purely to present information;Learning objects – an aggregation of one or more digital assets which represents an educationally meaningful stand-alone unit;Learning activities – tasks involving interactions with information to attain a specific learning outcome;Learning design – structured sequences of information and activities to promote learning.” (adapted from Littlejohn, A., Falconer, I. and Mcgill, L. (2008) 'Characterising effective eLearning resources'. Computers & Education, 50 (3), pp. 757-771.)
