A learning object functions as a relatively small, self-contained, and reusable piece of instruction. Within the GVTC-LOR, it could range from a simple graphic diagram to a complex simulation. Regardless of form, it should be based on a clear instructional strategy; the purpose is to provide an opportunity to learn an independent concept or procedure. Viewed as fundamental building blocks, learning objects can be grouped to create larger course structures.

Choke points are those concepts or procedures within a subject area that are known to cause difficulties for learners. These are frequently the primary objective for a learning object. Do you have a unique way of overcoming a particular learning challenge within your area of expertise? Share your knowledge by designing a learning object to help learners get past that choke point.
