Another field so related to learning objects: document engineering. At the DocEng2003 conference web site, the field is described as “a discipline within computer science that investigates systems for documents in any form and in all media. Like software engineering, document engineering is concerned with principles, tools and processes that improve our ability to create, manage, and maintain documents“. The conference has papers on “reusable, well-structured PDF” (!), “Creating Personalized Documents”, etc. Papers are not on-line – yet (I hope)?
