Multimedia learning objects

Learning objects, small “chunks” of learning content that focus on a specific learning objective, are being widely used in secondary education where different types of media – text, images, flash animations, simple simulations, video and audio recordings are available to educators from a database of media. Educators can select the objects that help them fulfill their learning objectives and incorporate them into web sites or lectures. These learning objects can be reused many times and can be used in different instructional contexts by different educators.

The EH&S profession has not adopted the concept of learning objects even though these objects, if constructed appropriately, could reduce the cognitive load of a training participant by providing a visual representation of key concepts. In the following table you will find examples of "video based" learning objects that can be incorporated into existing Power Point presentations of trainers. Producing learning objects of this type and making them available to trainers will allow them to retain complete control over the content and the delivery of their training programs while taking advantage of the power of digital videography. These learning objects are simply building blocks that fit into existing training programs, filling gaps or replacing lesser quality content. Another benefit of using learning objects is that training programs can be easily customized and the objects can be configured to meet the needs of the learner and knowledge of the trainer.
