The emergence of Learning Objects in learning technology has had a big impact on the learning environment and its community. Teachers and students have more facilities for using the E-Learning system, which has made the learning process more effective and beneficial. This paper presents an application framework for using Learning Objects in the learning styles application of an E-Learning system for an Object-Oriented C++ Programming subject. The project’s end-user is a higher learning institution student or anyone who is learning the subject. The focus is on the reusability aspect of the note—either content or database. The framework is explained by using SCORM-based architecture design, context diagram, database design, and interface design.
