NAWeb 2002, University of New Brunswick, Fredericton, New Brunswick, Workshop, Oct 20, 2002.

The intent of this workshop is to provide a comprehensive overview of learning objects and related topics for the non-technical reader. Common arguments identifying a need for learning objects are described. The development of learning objects is placed into a theoretical context by identifying the underlying concepts in computer science, standards initiatives and distance learning theory from which they evolved. Learning objects are then looked at from a practical point of view. Tools and techniques for creating learning objects are described. Finally, the learning object economy as a whole is developed. This is the system of learning object repositories, distribution systems and rights management. Document. Also, my blog from the conference.
