LS104 Making Learning Objects Shareable and Transferable

10:45 AM - 11:45 AM Wednesday, March 16



Creating learning objects is a time-consuming process. Most learning objects have content that could be used across different courses and departments. However, many learning objects, such as videos, tutorials, instructional documentation, and online courses are created with identifying details that make them difficult to repurpose or share with other members of the organization.

In this session, you will learn guidelines for creating effective learning objects that are shareable, transferable, and easily updateable. You will learn to create a diverse learning object repository that can be utilized for many different needs. This session will also provide you the tools you need to increase the value of your work, by allowing you to share your learning object creations with your colleagues in a format that can be immediately utilized.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to create learning objects for a wider audience
