A Typology of Learning Object Repositories

  • Chapter

Part of the International Handbooks on Information Systems book series (INFOSYS)

In this paper, the investigator attempts to create a comprehensive listing of learning object repositories (LORs) and address the following research questions:

  1. 1.

    What types of LORs are available on the Internet?

  2. 2.

    What are the principal features of these LORs?

  3. 3.

    What features are more or less universal and which are specific to certain types of repositories?

  4. 4.

    With the vast amounts of information available on the Internet, is there a need for LORs?
