This module is based on the results of the SLOOP – Sharing Learning Object in an Open Perspective – project (Leonardo da Vinci Programme 2005, www.sloopproject.eu), which has promoted the sharing and the co-operative production of learning digital resources following the model of free/opensource software.
This module will help the participants
understand the “open” philosophy/model which has been successfully adopted in the field of software development;
identify the state of the art concerning Learning Objects (LO), LO standards and LO repositories;
describe the features of a specific model for learning object, called openLO; and
discover the opportunities and benefits, for schools and teachers, of a sharing/co-operative approach in LO production.
