LodeStar Learning Objects To Work with Equella Digital Repository

Educators who create learning content with LodeStar Learning's e-learning authoring tool, lodeStar can now maintain those objects in the Equella Digital Repository from Learning Edge North America.

LodeStar users create games, problem-solving scenarios, Webquests, assessments, timelines, podcasts, and eBooks and then choose Equella as their export target through a wizard. LodeStar communicates directly to Equella to handle the upload.

"A key advantage to educators", said Robert Bilyk, founding director of LodeStar, "is that the content lives in the repository where it can be properly managed. The repository supports metadata, search and retrieval, and integration with leading learning management systems."

He added: "The content isn't trapped in [a learning management system], giving institutions full control over their digital assets. The key advantage of using LodeStar is that instructors can not only create highly interactive learning activities that engage students but can also attach information to their work that relates to [Sharable Content Object Reference Model] (SCORM) conformance, intellectual property, ADA compliance, and more."
