  Our research focuses on the design, development, use and evaluation of OSCAR learning objects. We are addressing questions such as:      
   What are the design guidelines to be used in the LO creation process that lead to high usability of LOs? How can principles from various domains (such as graphic design, interaction design, multimedia and animation design) be integrated to formulate the design guidelines?
   How can we create high quality LOs in multiple domains at a high production rate ?
   What is the impact of LOs on students' conceptual understanding, scientific abilities and attitudes ?
   What aspects of the LOs need to be evaluated to address the needs of all the stakeholders ? What evaluation instruments capture a 360 degree evaluation of the LOs?
  Our research involves observations of students interacting with the LOs, peer review of LOs by faculty subject-matter experts, and user feedback from students. In the future, we plan to conduct studies on student learning and use of LOs by teachers.
