Rencontres internationales du multimédia d’apprentissage - International Conference on Educational Media (RIMA-ICEM), l'Institut St Joseph, Quebec City, Quebec, Seminar, Mar 15, 2004.

This presentation runs through the concepts of learning objects, learning design, learning object standards and metadata, and then introduces eduSource by means of a discussion of repositories. It then covers RSS syndication and suggests an aggregation model for learning resource discovery and distribution. This leads to the concept of personalization in learning, with a look at emerging social networks. Finally, it covers the concept of learning environments. This was also the conference where I met Seymour Papert, and which formed much of the source material for my Educational Blogging article.  Coverage here and here.
