Learning Object Systems and Strategy: A Description and Discussion

Albert D. Ritzhaupt
2010 Interdisciplinary Journal of e-Skills and Lifelong Learning  
A learning object is "any digital resource that can be reused to support learning" (Wiley, 2000) .  ...  Learning object systems are based on the notion that multiple educational institutions could share the use and cost of the creation and management of the learning objects.  ...  Individual instructors then have the option to pick and choose from a vast assortment of the learning objects to customize their online courses and their on-campus courses for their students.  ...

Open educational practices for curriculum enhancement

Alejandro Armellini, Ming Nie
2013 Open Learning: The Journal of Open, Distance and e-Learning  
To that aim, we put forward a framework of four open educational practices based on patterns of OER reuse ('as-is' or adapted), mapped against the processes of curriculum design and delivery.  ...  The framework was developed from the in-depth analysis of 20 cases of higher education (HE) practitioners, which revealed patterns of OER reuse across disciplines, institutions and needs.  ...  of their own content in open repositories.  ...

OER adoption: a continuum for practice

Adrian Stagg
2014 Revista de Universidad y Sociedad del Conocimiento  
The quadrants describe the OER use as (1) used 'as-is' during the course design, (2) strategically repurposed during course redesign, (3) used 'as is' to enhance the course during delivery, and (4) repurposing  ...  The support required to repurpose a single learning activity will be different from that required of the lecturer who is designing an entire open credit-bearing course.  ...
