Learning objects: What are they good for?

WWW Applications, Central University of Technology, Free State, Bloemfontein, South Africa, Keynote, Sept 06, 2006.

This was a talk filled with technical glitches, but ultimately we were successful in broadcasting the world's first Skypecast keynote. Unfortunately, this knocked out the audio recording, which hence consists only of about 4 minutes of preliminary introductions. We recorded the Skypecast, but these are no longer maintained by Skype. People appreciated seeing us debug the audio live on stage to start the talk. Once we got going, we covered the definition of learning objects, objections to them and criticism of their use, and what would actually work to sustain a learning object economy.
