What is a Learning Object?

Not exactly sure what a Learning Object is? Don’t worry—it isn’t complicated. A learning object is a digital resource that has been designed as a small “chunk” to maximize the number of learning situations in which it can be reused. For example, a learning object could be a sequencing activity or a crossword puzzle.

Working with learning objects offers flexibility for both course authors and for learners. For authors, it is easier and more interesting to create learning content when you have a repository of learning objects from which you can draw. And your learners will enjoy the interactive learning experience when your learning content includes the learning objects you’ll find in the SoftChalk Cloud Learning Object repository.
