Los And Quality Concept

There are new organization models, which need to be encouraged (Cunha et al., 2006). One of the most important is the virtual organization model (Putnik et al., 2006). As a product of Web development, the LOs concept exists (Moreno & Bailly Baillière, 2002; IEEE LOM, 2002; Polsani, 2003; Wiley, 2000). LOs have characteristics of being independent units, which are able to be reused in other educational situations.

In agreement with this there are new ways for working and organizational dimensions (Cortés et al., 2006). Knowledge management for e-learning based on reusable LOs means the possibility of accessing specific content according to the learners’ needs. To avoid interoperability problems, there are some organizations that are working to develop standards and specifications to manage resources for e-learning systems.
