Reusable Learning Objects

Reusable Learning Objects (RLOs) are exactly what they sound like:
objects for learning that can be used again and again.

When done well, RLOs have some common characteristics:

  • They are interactive and visual, making them a useful learning activity for students who prefer a multimodal learning experience.
  • They are digital, making them easy to store, update, adapt, and share.
  • They are multipurpose and flexible, allowing them to be used in various learning settings, assessments, activities.
  • They are adaptable to any content area and any learning strategy.
  • They offer a small chunk of learning with one learning objective, also known as microlearning, making them useful for learning and revisiting for a quick review.
