Eg: reading activities, computer-based interactions, simulations, inquiry tasks, projects, open-ended problems, collaborative tasks etc. Learning Resources The content, information and resources with which the learners interact in completing the tasks.

  • 24. Content Packaging
    • Content packaging refers to the ability to combine learning resources into self-contained packages that can be readily transported between different repositories and learning management systems.
    • The need to package electronic learning resources has been given impetus by the development of the learning object model - the idea that self contained ‘objects’ can be obtained from a variety of sources and combined to create an individual learning experience.
    • Learning resources for online delivery can be as small as single web page or graphic, however for practical and educational purposes it is desirable to combine these into larger units ranging from a single lesson or the material needed to teach a unit of competency through to a complete course or qualification.
