This session will introduce the audience to a method of creating re-usable learning objects designed for non-technical academics. It will also demonstrate a range of re-usable learning objects produced by the E-Evolve and REVOLUTION projects and made available through an open access repository created by the EVOLUTION project. After a brief discussion on learning objects the audience will be provided with an introduction to the EVOLUTION method of developing learning materials for re-use. The presentation will also explain how re-usable objects can be repurposed in different ways to suit a variety of teaching styles and learner needs. It will also demonstrate how to locate and download the materials and provide a brief outline on re-purposing or re-using the materials using freely available software.
