Abstract

Learning object repositories and evaluation tools have the potential to serve as sites for interaction among different cultures and communities of practice. This article outlines Web-based learning object evaluation tools that we have developed, describes our current efforts to extend those tools to a wider range of user communities, and considers methods for fostering interaction among user communities. We discuss the recommendation of objects across community boundaries and approaches to mapping between languages, ontologies, and work practices.
