Re: [school-discuss] Learning Objects

Yes, Macromedia technology is closed and most of the
technology used to create learning objects is
too....However, the content repositories to store,
search, and reuse the learning objects, could be
developed using open-source technologies.  In fact,
there's a good opportunity to develop an open-source
learning object repository.  To my knowledge, I don't
know of any that exisist proprietary or otherwise. But
as more learning objects are developed....there will
be a huge need to store and sort all of them so they
can be reused.
