Well, it may be called an “instructional object” or even a “knowledge object” or have a special designation like “NETg learning object.” At any rate, it has as many definitions as it does names, so I am going to try to sort these out for the presentation. I was first introduced to learning objects in 2004 when I worked for the Department of Technical and Adult Education (DTAE). Learning objects were just coming into vogue as an instructional tool. Technical school instructors were using them as visual aids in their classrooms and I was asked to develop a number of them for various instructors. I had more or less forgotten about them until I saw them on the list as a topic. So I’m really interested in digging deeper to see how far they have come in ten years. This is going to be exciting!
