Learning object repository in Word


Table of Contents

CETIS notes an interesting development from Sentient Learning.

The solution consists of a central repository (LearnBase) and a content creation tool (LearnBuild). Claimed to be able to create IMS Content Packages, LearnBuild allows users to do most content creation and publishing operations from within Microsoft Word.

There are no technical details on the Sentient website:

The philosophy behind Sentient LearnBuild is one of technological inclusion. It is thought that the familiar Microsoft � Word functionality will allow all academics, regardless of technical background, a way to participate more fully in the e-learning revolution bringing a more creative and dynamic dimension to teaching practice. [Sentient Learning]

Whatever the detail, it is interesting as another example of the view that there are advantages in trying to fit in with exising patterns of behavior.
