CADE Wise and Witty Weekday, Canadian Association for Distance Education, Teleconference, Seminar, Nov 20, 2002.

The purpose of this session is to describe the architecture being recommended to eduSource Canada. The premise of the distributed learning object repository network (DLORN) is to create an open marketplace in Canada for learning opportunities online. Using a common set of protocols and a basic set of open source applications, any learning content provider may host a learning object repository and distribute and market learning materials through the network. This creates the widest set of opportunities for readers and purchasers of online learning content.
