Abstract: Are the instructional infrastructure and academic culture of higher education ready to deliver and embrace learning objects? The answer is “yes,” but not at a level that suggests massive institutional transformation-- yet. The promise remains too tenuous, the risk-reward ratio too high, and the sense of urgency too low for the majority of faculty to change their current practices. Nonetheless, learning objects-- right-sized content that may be re-used, re-contextualized, and re-purposed—bring with them small seeds of change that likely will grow vigorously in the future.
