A large diversity of learning environments allows users access the repositories to design and develop academic content in online courses.

Learning objects are considered as educational resources that can be employed in technology support learning. They are a digital pieces of
knowledge to put together in order to form courses on line.

“Whenever you create an academic content, you put a bit of yourself into the content. This part is often a representation of your own culture ..“
“.. We prefer to say that culture is in whatever you create. It is in there. The important question is what do you do with it.…. [Amiel and Orey].
