Learning Commons: Communities of Inquiry

Learning Objects at the Learning Commons

The Learning Commons at the University of Calgary is involved in several projects aimed at investigating and advancing the use of learning objects to support the practice of teaching and learning.

These projects range from leading work on learning object repository software and design, to investigating standards for describing and publishing learning objects, to developing and fostering communities of practice.
