    Abstract

    The content granularity and context information are two important factors to the efficiency and reusability of learning objects. The context information is necessary to facilitate the discovery and reuse of learning objects stored in global and/or local repositories. However, traditional learning objects are generally not conceived to incorporate with enough context information. Users have to do some extension of the description item set to fit their special use. In this paper, in order to deal with the issue mentioned above, we firstly introduce a context-rich paradigm, the related service driven tagging strategy, and a context model of learning objects. We further explain how to use the context information to realize the adaptive granularity of the content object. Finally, we show a simple concept model for online authoring systems that support the evolution from resource objects to learning objects.
