Albert Ip continues his reflections on my paper, this time looking at the (long forgotten) origins of learning objects, exploring what he argues are essential features of the object oriented paradign. Only SCORM objects, he notes, are really like learning objects - and those aren't even learning objects, but 'sharable content objects'. "Should we put the term 'learning object' to rest and return back to use the more accurate and appropriate terms such as learning resource, teaching resource or just resource?" he asks. More...
