Abstract or Summary

It has been argued that the development and deployment of learning objects in digital environments have the potential to reduce costs and improve the quality of information and digital content presented to learners. However, there apears to be confusion about what a learning object actually is. Is it a single piece of information or should learning objects be described as a collection, a combination, or a range of digital resources available. This poster describes how the project team of the Open Source Learning Object Repository, a project funded by the Tertiary Education Commission of New Zealand, looked for simple definitions.
