Combining resource-intensive learning objects with rapid, template-driven course design provides a cost-effective method for developing pedagogically sound online courses. This paper describes the implementation of such a system at San Diego State University, with a detailed example of a learning object and an in-depth description of course design. Learning objects are self-contained, multi-purpose instructional modules separate from a course. Learning object are integrated into a course by adding a "docking object" which may connect the object to other course content, or give special instructions. Learning objects can be time-consuming and expensive to develop, so we integrate them into a pedagogically sound instructional environment that is easy and inexpensive to develop (I CARE). I CARE is an acronym for Introduction, Connect, Apply, Reflect, and Extend. By carefully combining these two types of systems, organizations can maximize the effectiveness of online training and education through object learning on the World Wide Web.
