Trends and Issues: The Impact of Learning Objects
Reasons to Have Learning Objects (LOs)
Clark and Rossett cite there are many reasons for having LOs, but the following
“three R’s” of Learning Objects best describe the reasons
- Reduce - Developing materials as a LO reduces the content into manageable
bites. By tagging and cataloging them, they become a flexible asset and can
be used in a variety of ways.
- Repurpose - Learning Objects can be used for different purposes. For
example, sections of a video tape on Presentation Skills could be used in a
Communication class as examples for students to review.
- Recycle - Learning Objects are especially successful when recycled for
new uses. For example, a videotape about CPR used in a First Aid class for management
staff can be carved into a segment of a Health and Nutrition class.
