This seminar is co-organised by the Centre for Information Technology in Education (CITE) and the Centre for the Advancement of University Teaching (CAUT), HKU
With the increase in on-line teaching and learning there has been a great deal of interest in the idea of sharable, self-contained learning resources, or Learning Objects (images, movies, Flash simulations, text, quizzes, even whole modules) that can be developed, evaluated, adapted, reused and shared among colleagues, both within and across institutions. The Learning Resources Catalogue (LRC3) developed in conjunction with LEARNet, now provides Hong Kong academics access to more than 45,000 learning objects. In this seminar Ian will introduce the latest version of the LRC3 and illustrate how it can be used to facilitate curriculum development for on-line delivery.
From 1992-2003 Ian Hart was Associate Professor and Head, Interactive Media Group in the CAUT and was the first Project Supervisor of LEARNet. Since his retirement from HKU he has worked closely with the LRC3 developers on the Tool Set and Interface and has supervised the LEARNet Production Fund. Ian is now based in Australia where he is a consultant in the Educational Applications of ICT and runs an independent multimedia production company.
