Three Objections to Learning Objects:  Friesen, N. (2004). Three Objections to Learning Objects. In McGreal, R. (Ed.). Online Education Using Learning Objects. London: Routledge/Falmer. See also my presentation (MS PowerPoint) for the Canadian Association for Distance Education Annual conference. "Learning objects," "learning object metadata," and "learning object repositories" are terms that have been central to many discussions, projects and funding priorities of both public and private educational organizations.

This paper outlines a number of problems associated with this movement, all of which arise in some way from the juxtaposition of narrow technical and specialized concepts with the general and varied dimensions and contexts of learning. In doing so, it will place special emphasis on the contexts proper to public education. It raises these objections to learning objects in the interests of fostering an open discussion that would bring the concepts and thinking associated with them to more fruitful relationship with the practices of learning and education.
