Abstract: Learning Objects (LO) facilitate learning of concepts and topics using self-contained modules that can be easily re-used in different learning contexts. Several organizations, most notably the IEEE and the IMS Consortium, have proposed standards for describing these learning objects, i.e., IMS/IEEE Learning Object Metadata (LOM) standards. Although these efforts substantially advance the goals of interoperability, they do not address the need for accessibility to the internal composition of the learning objects themselves. Under the present standards, LOs remain opaque entities from which valuable information cannot be easily gleaned or harvested, nor introduced or adapted. The support for learner modeling and adaptation, both in terms of general interaction preference and in terms of performance, is not well addressed within these opaque objects, as the interaction with the learner and the adaptation to the learner are not explicitly made accessible in an application independent manner.
