Abstract: The field of online learning is an ever-improving art and science. There are many lessons that schools can learn from the online learning industry. Over the last five
years, the industry has learned to separate technology from methodology and to channel more resources into instructional designs and approaches. Every few months, a new trend hits the online learning industry in
corporations around the world. This article aims to place three interrelated trends (reusable learning objects, blended learning, and instructional design) in
online learning within the context of schools and their implications for schools. These impli cations include the need for schools to coordinate and collaborate in the
creation of learning objects; to adopt a learning management system that searches distributed catalogues of learning objects; to acquaint teachers with instructional design principles; to redefine the roles of students and teachers; and to reassess the
curriculum and mode of assessment.
