- The idea of Learning Objects is now a widely accepted concept for the delivery of modularized e-learning content. Originating from Object Oriented programming, the concept has evolved to embrace almost everything that is digital. Based on literature, experience from implementation and a comparative study of Learning Objects, we argue that the concept needs to be more clearly defined in order to deliver what it promises. We argue that most implementations are not technology- and pedagogy-neutral and do not support sophisticated reuse. In the conclusion, six action areas for establishing technical quality criteria are suggested: a narrow definition, a mapping taxonomy, more extensive standards, and best practise for use of existing standards, architecture models, and the separation of pedagogy from the supporting technology of Learning Objects.
