I describe the Learning Object Browser, which may be a hosted website, but is more likely to be a stand-alone application specific to your internet access device. Most importantly, it is yours, you configure it, you establish the options. Functions of the LOB: find learning opportunities (note that I did not say courses, content or learning objects); retrieve specific learning instances (which may be courses, content, objects, applications, interactions, testing, more…); play learning instances either directly or via a nearby device.
