Learning Objects in Use: ‘Lite’ Assessment for Field Studies
Saturday, January 1, 2005
This study was conducted to evaluate the use and re-use of learning objects (LOs) that were developed under the Co-operative Learning Object Exchange (CLOE) in Ontario, Canada. Student questionnaire data provided their perceptions of the learning value, added value, design usability and technology function. Other perspectives on the value of using and repurposing learning objects were provided through student and instructor interviews. Results indicated that technical functionality did not present usability problems, but that the design of learning objects was their most critical feature for students. The questionnaire used for measuring student perceptions may prove useful for instructors who want to assess the usefulness of learning objects within a variety of instructional contexts and disciplines.
