"Learning objects in an e-learning context"


With vigorous development of the Internet, e-learning systems have become more
and more popular. Since 1997, ADL's SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference
Model) specifications have been explored in the context of XML-based metadata
with physical files. We invite submissions that are related to the following topics:

- SCORM-compliant Learning object in e-learning context
- SCORM-compliant Learning repository
- Web services for distributed learning repositories
- SCORM-compliant Learning repository with Digital Right Management (DRM)
- Case study on Simple Sequencing Specification
- Learning objects implemented across nations, disciplines, or universities
- SCORM authoring tools for packaging and its evaluation' criteria
- SCORM authoring tools for simple sequencing and its evaluation' criteria
- Ontological support for authoring SCORM-compliant learning material
- Data mining for Simple Sequencing of course
- Adaptive learning vs. Course Sequencing
- What are criteria to evaluate a learning repository?
- Can OCW (Open CourseWare) at MIT be transformed into SCORM-compliant specification for LO reuse?
