|CETL in Reusable Learning Objects
Work by LTRI staff was instrumental in securing funding from HEFCE for a Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) in Reusable Learning Objects. The CETL was a collaboration from 2005-2010 between London Metropolitan University, Universities of Cambridge and Nottingham, and was awarded £3 million.
The CETL has developed a range of multimedia learning objects that can be stored in repositories, accessed over the Web, and integrated into course delivery. It has extended the work of the partners in establishing effective methods of the design, development and delivery of reusable learning objects. There is also a strong programme of embedding and evaluation in a range of subject areas, from Nursing, Maths, Languages through to Study Skills.
The CETL also contributed actively to research on the pedagogical and structural issues in using learning objects to achieve real educational impact.
One direction this work took is the development of the GLO Maker authoring tool for creating GLOs (Generative Learning Objects). It is a powerful tool for producing multimedia learning objects that can be loaded into a VLE, or made available on the Web. The tool is open source and free to use for educational purposes. For more details see the GLO Maker website: http://www.glomaker.org
Professor Tom Boyle (London Metropolitan University, CETL Director), Dawn Leeder (University of Cambridge) and Dr. Heather Wharrad (University of Nottingham) led the development of this innovative CETL at each of the partner institutions.
