Learning Object Tools are those that allow you to create, edit and manage learning objects.There is also a bit of language barrier. I pointed them at the Wikipedia article - Learning Object. It cites quite a few repositories and briefly mentions "Burrokeet is an Open Source Software tool that assists in the creation of Learning Objects from existing content. " This is something I'm not familiar with. I also suggested looking at LCMS products. And looking at SCORM / SCOs.
But it got me to thinking that I've really not looked at Learning Objects in quite a while - and I've not really kept up on Learning Object Tools.
So, I was hoping that someone could help me and him:
- What are good general discussions of learning objects and learning object tools?
- My impression is that these were a big topic about 4-5 years ago, and a lot is happening in academia, but not much is happening in corporate spaces. Is that the right impressions?
- What are the categories of tools that represent this space?
- What are some specific tools within those categories?
