Forum 4: Learning Objects from Cultural and Scientific Heritage Resources

The Hague's long, sinuous tramcars looped quietly by outside the Koninklijke Bibliotheek while the DigiCULT experts discussed the question of how European heritage institutions might benefit from the production and provision of e-learning opportunities based on the concept of Learning Objects. The experts provided many insights, 'tricky questions', lessons learnt, and recommendations... which are summarised in DigiCULT Thematic Issue 4.
