Assistance with Learning Objects
In a Learning Object, content can be broken up into bite-size pieces and packaged
in a digital format. These chunks (Learning Objects) can be independently created
and maintained, reused and combined with others to form a larger learning package.
The Academic Technology Team assists faculty with creating Learning Objects. Explore
