ReusablEd is an open education platform that will make it easier to create and distribute learning objects. Learning objects are reusable learning units (small chunks of education). In simple terms, you take the traditional 2-hour-long course, and split it up into several chunks of more generic and self-contained learning units, which makes it much easier to distribute and reuse these learning units in different contexts. For many reasons, it's quite difficult to author courses in this manner ... one of the main reasons being the lack of a standard protocol to enable this. The goal of ReusablEd is to solve this problem and many others by authoring an open protocol allowing people all around the world to shape the protocol for the best possible outcome. Once a protocol is in place, ReusablEd will provide the necessary platform making use of the protocol to make the creation and distribution of these learning objects a much much easier and sane process.
