Abstract

Designing learning experiences supported by Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is becoming an important skill for all academics in the higher education sector, With a range of "quality" measures being implemented and foreshadowed by government, including "dollars" linked to student learning outcomes, all academics will be increasingly asked to examine their instructional strategies and to offer high quality learning opportunities. Sharing learning resources is seen as one strategy to help academics in this change process. As such, online repositories of learning objects are flourishing to encourage the concept of reuse. However, what is lacking are tools to support academics in designing high quality learning environments that incorporate learning objects. This paper presents a prototype tool that uses the concept of a "learning design" as the framework to assist academics in the design process and demonstrates how learning objects can be incorporated.
