Devising a Typology of LOs Based on Pedagogical Assumptions
In this paper, we outline the pedagogical assumptions that underlie the design of a distributed web-based environment, presently under development, devoted to robotics education at university level. We briefly discuss, from an educational point of view, the approach followed to implement these assumptions. In particular, we focus our attention on the methodological choices underlying the design of the Learning Objects (LOs) to be used as didactical materials in the environment. These have been conceived so as to meet the complex requirements of the learning subject considered, and to model the didactical proposal based on a constructive view of the learning process.
