Comprehensive web page includes: (a) characterizations of "learning objects" (b) links to "Global Studies" and other learning objects, collections of learning objects, and key organizations associated with learning objects and metadata, and (c) a select bibliography.
Good explanation of what a learning object is. Links were provided to online learning objects with descriptions of their content. The Cold War link http://www.cnn.com/SPECIALS/cold.war/kbank/maps was incredible. When you select Cold War Battlelines and then Col War Experience/culture, you have access to a Cold War thriller (fourteen chapters long) written by CNN.com readers -- http://www.cnn.com/SPECIALS/cold.war/experience/culture/. I am amazed at the wealth of content available online! Thanks to this site focused on Learning Objects, I have a quick resource to access some of these resources.
