Creating and Employing On-line Dynamic Learning Objects for an Introductory Programming Module

Poppy Pickard, Peter Chalk, Ray Jones


The paper shows how learning objects can be designed to promote a constructivist learning environment whilst maintaining flexibility for reuse and repurposing. These learning objects, which support an introductory Java programming module, are employed across two UK HE institutions that both use the same virtual learning environment (WebCT) to link to these objects, together with a graphic software library creating a rich and varied learning environment. Collaborationwas ongoing during the parallel process of development and delivery. The first semester is evaluated, and suggestions are made for future work.
