The Learning Object Program
We work with faculty to develop interactive learning tools and animations that help students understand difficult concepts. These modules are shared across campus, with faculty at other institutions and are used both inside and outside of the classroom. Our projects range from animations of biological processes such as neurulation (embryonic development of the neural tube), to a simulated Indian village, where students can explore the complex interfaces and interactions among North Indians and their social and cultural lives by way of a series of interconnected maps, images, audio, and video segments. We seek to enhance the liberal arts experience by providing content in modes not usually available by traditional means. Listen to the brief interviews below to hear what faculty have to say about developing these materials. (Real player required).
