Two Applications of Learning Objects: An Analysis using the Unified Theory of Acceptance and use of Technology
Abstract: Since their popularization with the publication of David Wiley’s Instructional Use of Learning Objects. learning objects evoked strong reactions from educational technologists. But in the past few years, that conversation has quieted down. Rather than having had gone away, learning objects have quietly become adopted. Using the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology as a conceptual model, this paper analyzes the success of two such adoptions: the Teachers Pay Teachers site where K-12 teachers sell lesson materials and the Darwin Information Typing Architecture used to produce instructional materials about high technology products.
