Using O2 to Overcome Learning Objects Limitations

David Wiley, Jun 06, 2003
Commentary by Stephen Downes

David Wiley and a host of other writers collectively known as the "Resusability, Collaboration and Learning Troupe" (a reference to IMS learning design?) discuss the use of 'context-free' learning objects through their situation in educational environments (my phrasing, not theirs). The central thesis is sound: to make objects more widely usable, you have to remove specific pedagogical properties from them. Whence, then, the pedagogy? This consists in the placement or use of a learning object in a learning environment. The pedagogy comes from how the object is used, not how the object is designed (the authors may also want to read Albert Ip on the same topic).
