This week's (March 27) lecture in the Knowledge Media Design Institute (KMDI) Technology in Support of Learning and Teaching, Spring 2002 Lecture Series is:

Metadata, objects and repositories: Steps towards the Semantic web in Education by Terry Anderson, Professor and Research Chair in Distance Education, Athabasca University.

Dr. Anderson was formerly the Director of the University of Alberta's Academic Technologies for Learning (ATL) in the Faculty of Extension.

Those interested in "object-based" education, may also find the ATL Educational Objects Projects - A Progress Update of interest. The page contains a number of great links to theory and practice in this area.
