Using new collaboration strategies, the Co-operative Learning Object Exchange (CLOE, cloe.on.ca) has been able to bring together 25 diverse institutions as equal partners for shared learning objects. Identifying multiple ways to contribute was critical: some partners not yet able to participate in design have focused on peer review, others focus on reusing objects for feedback, while a bilingual partner focuses on translation. CLOE thus models the processes required to scale up collaboration amongst and across learning object repositories.
