In the Calibrate project, where we are developing LeMill – a system for collaborative authoring of open learning resources – we wrote a paper presenting our design of three online learning object templates. The Demonstration of LO template prototypes -document is in our LeMill development sever. We would love to hear your comments and suggestions.
The resulting learning objects created with these templates are designed for maximum accessibility, interoperability, and versatility. This means that the learning objects created with the templates can be used in various learning scenarios, situations and environments.
At first we present the general design rationale behind the design of the learning object templates. Then we present three templates with contextual scenarios explaining what kind of situations they are designed for. Furthermore we provide template design documents demonstrating the user interface and human computer interaction.
