How to Use Learning Objects

Stephen Downes

PowerPoint Slides

Stephen Downes argues that the traditional approach to using Learning Objects - stringing them together into lessons and courses - is misguided because it is a misuse of new media. He suggests that new media should be regarded as a new language, with its own semantics and grammar, that informs how we should use the 'words' (learning objects) in that language.
