The Use is the Context

So D’Arcy, Brian, and Alan have been talking about using Trackback to contextualize learning objects. This is truly excellent! One of the goals of the Instructional Architect was to facilitate automated recommendations (aka collaborative filtering) of learning objects, i.e., “people who used this learning object also used these other three.” However, we were only capable of carrying out these recommendations for content bundles authored within IA itself. Trackback would allow recommendations of LOs from arbitrary collections, so long as there were both in-bound and out-bound links on the LO’s homepage. It just keeps getting tastier and tastier…
