What thought leaders are saying …
Learning Objects is helping us establish a learning process that students are familiar and comfortable with, and that builds foundational knowledge for the active learning in class. That’s where we find the value.
Today’s students demand flexibility – both in how, when and where they consume content, and in the kinds of courses they take.
It's the first time I've taught a course and knew that students were doing the reading.
