Abstract

There is a variety of tools and environments for Learning Objects (LOs) design and delivery as well as learning object repositories (LOR) but the researchers could not find a repository that includes both functions: creation and storing of LOs. A number of different integrated learning systems are suggested for users that demonstrate the variety of e-learning methods and semantic capabilities. LO repository oer.ndma.lt/lor, that we are going to present, is very friendly and interoperable to use and assure LO design, search in semantic web, adaptation of the re-used objects and storing. There are no more existing LO repositories with the functionality presented by researchers. Transformation of closed education into open one without existence of well-structured, multifunctional and integrated environment becomes problematic. Authors will present an integrated environment for the LO design, search in semantic web, adaptation and storing of newly designed or re-designed LO. Measures will support the transformation of closed education into open and will assure effective design, re-usability and adaptation of LO in the integrated environment.
