Abstract

The future of learning objects in educational programs is closely tied to the future of elearning and the development of online curriculum in education. Learning objects should reflect best teaching, learning practice and enhance the curriculum. They will only become a feature of educational curriculum if teachers are provided with opportunities and support to learn how to embed them into learning programs in a pedagogically sound manner. As with e-leaming overall, the teaching needs to change first. Otherwise the future of learning objects will reflect previous attempts to integrate technology into educational programs which have enjoyed limited success and produced few discemable educational outcomes for students.
