Abstract

[Executive Summary]: Murdoch University was one of several institutions and consortia funded to investigate the educational use of the Collaborative Online Learning and Information Services (COLIS) system developed in 2002 by a consortium based at Macquarie University. This project set out to investigate the use and useability of learning objects across three aspects of the COLIS system. Existing, single file learning objects were to be inserted into the IPR Systems Learning Object Exchange (LOX), transferred into the Learning Object Management System (LOMS), and made available through the WebCT Learning Management System. With the forced substitution of the Intralibrary Learning Object Repository for the IPR Systems exchange, the use of LOMS became superfluous. Similarly, the Federated search gateway did not function with the Intralibrary Learning Object Repository. Instead, Intralibrary’s own search function was used.
