A learning object is a small unit of educational material, usually in a digital format, delivered over the Internet. Learning objects are designed so that they are reusable in different course structures or learning management systems. A learning object is also meant to be self-contained.

Learning objects can be as simple as one episode of a podcast or as complex as a Flash simulation that provides journaling and assessment.

We will help you break your course materials into small units of learning to make it easier to reuse those materials in other classes. Providing online learning materials as learning objects also makes it easier for learners to feel a sense of accomplishment and provides them with a way to easily review materials as often as needed.
