Faculty Development Resources and Tool Kit

The Faculty Development Resources and Tool Kit is here to support the creation of resources that will enrich technology-enhanced learning environments. The creation, use and storage of educational objects has been an area of research that has evolved over time.

Educational or learning "objects" is a term used to describe a new model for digital learning in which components can be mixed, reused and repurposed for use by various disciplines.

Examples of educational objects are:
· digital animations
· graphics
· simulations
· digitized video and audio segments
· Webcasts
· lesson plans to support online learning activities
· interactive exercises for course Web sites.

Repositories such as CAREO (Campus Alberta Repository of Educational Objects) or MERLOT (Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching) make the search for learning objects and their exchange among educators a reality.
