Make you own learning object

This hands-on workshop follows from the e-Gems Webinar "Learning objects: Create, Reuse, Deploy for better teaching and learning online!" (11 May 2011). It shows you how to work with the VET Reload Tool to create or manipulate learning objects.

You will be able to assemble your existing resources, e.g. word documents, digital photographs, html pages, videos and pdf files in a learning object format or add and remove pages from an existing learning object you have downloaded from the TLOR (Toolbox Learning Object Repository).

This flexible and universal learning object format allows learning sequences you have created or customised to be used as a standalone, coherent resources or imported into any Learning management system or even delivered on CDRom.

Requirements: Bring a collection of resources on a USB Stick.
