While Learning Objects can transform education, faculty are frequently overwhelmed
by the actual task of creating them. Agile Programming, a family of tools and
practices designed to produce software swiftly, flexibly, and sustainably,
can remedy this problem. We will explore the concepts from Agile Programming
relevant to the Learning Object development cycle, focusing on the tools to
be used and their real-world application, and demonstrating the actual development
of a new object or two.
