The purpose of this study was to examine teachers' attitudes and perceptions toward the use of learning objects-based instruction (i.e., Learning Objects Environment-LOE) and a project-based format as an instructional strategy in an advanced multimedia classroom. Results revealed that both the teachers' current views about LOE courseware and the perceived importance of similar environment were positive toward the use of the learning objects e-learning. However, teachers with strong technical skills, and experiences appeared to have a more positive attitude toward the learning objects-based instruction than traditional web-based instruction. Finally, outcomes and benefits of the LOE, implications for teachers, and future research questions are discussed.
