This project started from the necessity to create a taxonomic classification for the management of the Learning Objects (LO) repository used by the LCMS platforms. The classification obtained is now in use for the OSEL project (OSEL website – http://www.osel.it). The OSEL project is financed by the Statistics Department of the University of Bari. The aim is to analyze and to promote the introduction of blended e-learning in the academic world. Many LCMSs Open-source platforms have been studied, tested and put at users’ disposal. The support to the ADL/SCORM (see http://www.adlnet.org) given by all the platforms has allowed the integration in the OSEL web of the repository service, along with the services already in use (forum, newsletter, glossary, database). The aim is to gather and to catalogue the LO products proposed in the various courses and managed by the learners on the web. Starting from Wiley’s (2000) and Redeker’s (2003) taxonomies, the research group studied the OSEL Taxonomy and presented the project of a web application able to classify the LO and to place them in order into the repository.
