Figures 1, 2, and 3: Browsing Topics and Selecting and Viewing Learning Objects by Learning Objective

Faculty come to the faculty portal, click on a topic, and find a set of learning objectives as well as learning objects that fulfill them. For example, they can navigate to a subject, (Precalculus, Figure 1); choose a topic, (Polynomial Functions, Figure 2); select a learning objective (Recognize a function as a Polynomial Function, Figure 3); and view all content, including text and media, that addresses that learning objective.

Figure 5: Multimedia Learning Objects

The Vista Media Library tool is used to organize media objects for browsing individually rather than only in context in the course content. Items must be downloaded from the Assignments tool; therefore links to both the Media Library and the Assignments tool are stored together in an Organizer page in Vista.
