Reusable Learning Objects

  1. 1. Reusable Learning Objects Or reinvent the wheel?
  2. 2. What are LOs? <ul><li>A learning object is a resource, usually digital and web-based, that can be used and re-used to support learning. </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;any digital resource that can be re used to support learning&quot; - David Wiley </li></ul>
  3. 3. What are RLOs? <ul><li>Grounded in the object-oriented paradigm from computer science (Dahl & Nygaard, 1966). </li></ul><ul><li>Also related to instructional theories associated with breaking down content to constituent parts, then reassembling content to meet learning goals </li></ul><ul><ul><li>objects, concept, fact, principle, process, and procedure - used to build a larger structure based on a single objective called the reusable learning object. </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. LEGO Blocks!
  5. 5. VASAT follows a granular content organization model RLO in Agriculture
  6. 8. Creating an RLO <ul><li>Designers/developers need to balance two perspectives: </li></ul><ul><li>Conceptualizing content as a part of a larger whole (such as a course, or a curriculum), and </li></ul><ul><li>As stand-alone information at the desired level of granularity . </li></ul>
  7. 9. Some more specifications for a RLO <ul><li>Objective based </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Accomplish a single learning objective </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Context Free </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Content, media and interactivity are combined </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Interactive </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Not always required; engaging learners </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Self-descriptive </li></ul><ul><ul><li>metadata </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Format free </li></ul>

  14. 16. How to reuse?
  15. 17. Aggregate Resources Content aggregated from VASAT Wiki Content from external Website Integrate content from various sources Content aggregated thus could also be exported to various formats
  16. 18. Wiki Article External Website Aggregate Content Content Aggregation from different sources using eXe Export Content 1 2 3 4
  17. 19. Content Repurposing Content repackaging and repurposing for export to many formats ( compatible with SCORM, IMS-global for LMS and as HTML and to i-POD )
