Robby Robson (CEO, Eduworks & Chair, IEEE LTSC Committee)
& Ellen Wagner (Director of Learning Technologies, Learnativity Alliance)
This was the fifth and final session of the Learning Object Forum, a track conceived as a catalyst to forming a learning object community of practice. I’ll recount a few highlights – and encourage you to look at the entire presentation when it goes up on the eLearning Guild site.
The Learning Object Forum builds on the Learning Object Symposium a group of us attended in Menlo Park in early September.

Why do we need a community? To keep the learning in learning objects. Learning has become a business proposition, described by words like competitive advantage and cognitive capacity. Object orientation is a given but today’s object experts are “only one object ahead of the rest of us.” For design to shape what’s ahead, we better get on it now.
Business organizations need a content strategy that shares the goals of their technology strategy. Scalable, access, improved productivity, durability & maintainability, software that doesn’t suck, and LOTS of value. Software isn’t even usable yet, but our history is short – the Internet has been commercial for only seven years. (Robby jokes that I began with the UNIVAC 1.)
If it doesn’t work for the individual, no WIIFM, it’s not going to work.
So… every organization needs a content strategy that spells out concrete
Think of content as a commodity: objects.
What do you get for your efforts?
The picture is becoming more clear.
