Context
Why Language Learning Objects?
Project description
Researching models and
developing tools
• Expected outcomes and
dissemination
Why MURLLO? – a viewpoint
• eLanguages – Funded by UKeU (03-05) to produce
English for Academic Purposes RLOs
– 1500 RLOs/GLOs stored in CLARe
(Contextualised Learning Activity REpository)
– Re-purposing by keeping learning design and
replacing content: How to store relationships?
How to store details of context of use?
– Efficient resource discovery: RLLOMAP etc may
not be sufficient
– Managing copyright of assets and RLOs
– Currently licensing to UK/Eire HEIs, British
Council India etc. How to develop business
models for selection, licensing and exporting of
collections
– Pedagogically sound re-use and re-purposing
Why MURLLO? - context

Project description
• Using an RLO on proofreading as
an exemplification to illustrate
how research into metadata and
business models can encourage
the use of content by supporting
the development of pedagogically
sound re-use and re-purposing of
RLOs that will add value to the
education community
