Abstract

. A learning object must be reusable if it is to have any significant application in education. For this it must be retrievable. Like a boomerang, if it can't come back it is of little use. This paper explores the nature of learning objects, several analogies for explaining them, and a range of what might be considered to be a learning object. The importance of metadata is rationalized and the CanCore metadata application profile for implementing learning object metadata is described. The Canadian eduSource project to create a national network of interoperable learning object repositories is also portrayed.
