KEY ISSUES FOR LEARNING OBJECTS EVALUATION

Erla M. Morales Morgado, Ángela Barrón Ruiz, Francisco J. García Peñalvo

Abstract

Web development is promoting important advantages for educational area specially e-learning systems. By one side Learning Objects (LOs) aim the possibility to reuse specific information and by the other side they can be interchanged though different context and platforms according to the user’s needs. However an urgent necessity exists to guarantee the LOs quality content. There exists a plethora of quality criteria to value digital sources but there are only a few suggestions about how to evaluate LOs to structure quality courses. This work is a proposal to evaluate LOs as a continued process taking into account different kind of LOs evaluation according to their characteristics and quality criteria related to metadata information, pedagogical and usability issues, together with a strategy to ensure a continued LOs quality contents.
