Description

E-learning is growing at a rapid rate, both in the fields of education and training. Greater emphasis on on-line learning has given rise to increased interest in the modularization and packaging of course materials into what is becoming knowns as "learning objects" (the "building blocks" of on-line learning courses and programs, which may be adapted and re-used in different contexts). The reasons for this interest are clear. Quality multimedia courseware is expensive to produce. Departments have limited funds and time, so any opportunity to adapt or re-use existing course materials must be considered. This book provides a synopsis of the state of the art in the field of learning objects and metadata (data about data), with introductory articles to the subject for beginners followed by more specific articles explaining more difficult concepts and introducing relevant applications. It maintains a practical focus, and provides case studies of some of the more exciting learning object applications being developed.show more
