Key Points

Think about what materials and learning objects you will develop.

  • Printed matter (text/graphics) - books, articles, handouts, transcripts, assignments, activities, etc.
  • Web-based (online) text/graphics - books, articles, handouts, transcripts, assignments - these are most likely to be called 'learning objects'.
  • Lecture - in-person human(s) speaking to group (This would be true especially in blended learning)
  • Web-delivered (various platforms) Lecture - online human(s) speaking in real-time
  • Recorded Lecture distributed on external media. e.g., thumb drive, DVD, CD, VHS, cassette, etc.- recording of audio and/or video of a lecture previously delivered in-person or on-line in real-time.
  • Recorded Lecture distributed through the Web
