Abstract or Summary

This paper is a narrative story describing how the Open Source Learning Object Repository (OSLOR) project worked through the process of defining, describing and sharing learning objects. The OSLOR team was conscious that for learning object repositories to function fully, simple, self-explanatory solutions had to be explored and implemented so participants would not be overwhelmed by the need to acquire advanced software application or library cataloguing skills. The paper anticipates the definitions, descriptions and sharing solutions described will be open to debate and refinement, it recognizes they are not the final answer. However, the team hope the paper generates an ongoing debate on the future of learning objects and their use within New Zealand institutions and elsewhere.
