Description
Summary:Learning Objects are key elements within e-Learning environment because describe the created educational material for students, besides, it permits the reusing and sharing in di_erent Learning Management Systems. Usually, when teachers need to create and structure educational experiences, they attend to repositories for retrieving resources fitted to their interest, for reducing the e_ort and the computational time. In this paper, a proposal is presented for merging Learning Objects from heterogeneous repositories; the model is based on semantic relationships between Learning Objects retrieved from a meta-search engine, as an alternative for locating fitted educational resources for teacher’s interest. The model exposed in the proposal has been implemented as initial prototype, which retrieves Learning Objects from open repositories. An initial study results confirm the usefulness of the model.
