What is LOC?

The Learning Object Creator is an authoring tool designed to help educators create effective online learning materials with little or no technical knowledge.

LOC has been developed by the LLAS Centre for Languages, Linguistics and Area Studies at the University of Southampton. To access and use LOC, you will need to attend a workshop with LLAS in which you will receive training in using the authoring tool and the pedagogical implications of writing online materials.

Want to find out more? Take the tour   to find out more about how the LOC can help your teaching.

“The pedagogy behind the LOC helps to ensure best practice in materials design…Using the LOC has…increased my understanding of effective online learning material.”
