Good explanation of what a learning object is. Links were provided to online learning objects with descriptions of their content. The Cold War link – 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 readers -- 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.

This site is a treasure-trove of resources for the online educator. The list of
learning object collections alone is worth a visit. Generally, it is a
collection of resources, very good, in-depth resources.

Technical Remarks:

This site requires no special plug-ins and loads quickly.
