I found a link to a presentation given at ALAO on learning objects. Karen Diaz and Nancy O’Hanlon from The Ohio State University Libraries have posted Learning Objects for Library Instruction to OSU’s Knowledge Bank.
“This presentation was given at the Spring Workshop of the Academic Library Association of Ohio (ALAO) Instruction Interest Group on April 23, 2004. It discusses theory of learning objects and provides examples of learning object repositories. Techniques and software useful for building interactive learning objects, such as simulations, games, guided tasks (action mazes and Web Quests) are described. Evaluation of learning objects and use of the National Learning Infrastructure Initiative (NLII) observation tool are also covered. A workshop activity and a resource list are included.”
