How to Design Recyclable Learning Objects

Commentary by Stephen Downes

Some good points in this cynical look at learning objects. Promoters of the concept need to worry when it is observed, with some justification, that "content is harder to recycle than design." That said, I noted with interest the author's observation that "while learning content didn't get re-used very often, instructional techniques did," which led the author to conclude that recycling design brought greater gains than recycling content. This unorthodox look at reusable learning objects is definitely worth a look, and it was nice of eLearnMag to put this article on a page of its own so the link won't expire.CRLF
