LOÆLA From a Learning Object Centric View to a Learning Activity Perspective
Hans G. K. Hummel, Rob Koper and Colin Tattersall
This article focuses on the learning in e-learning. We argue why we must rethink the current learning object centric paradigm in e-learning technology towards a more learning activity centric perspective on e-learning. When examining current needs in educational practice and limitations in learning technology and LMS, we must conclude that the field of learning technology needs to be enhanced with a specification that is able to capture a larger and more innovative variety of new pedagogical approaches to learning. The IMS Learning Design specification offers a more generic pedagogical framework, that also enables more activitybased and collaborative learning designs for a large variety of approaches and domains.
