    123124After writing the text content the users can add the first scene. They are asked to upload (or search from Pieces) background image and a voiceover audio clip. It is also possible to add up to three keywords that will be displayed during that scene.

    139 These online learning object authoring templates attempt to answer the various challenges posed by collaborative learning approaches. The templates are kept simple, small, and restricted, so that teachers are not encouraged to create too detailed material that leaves nothing for the learners to discover. The Progressive Inquiry Context Template is a good example of an interesting, motivating learning object, whose main function is to present a theme to learners, and open questions rather than provide answers. The combination of images, questions, and voiceover produces a very captivating material that is more fun to look at than just pages in a book.

    141144Viewing of the objects created with these templates has been made as easy as possible - they are all viewable in a normal web browser, using an easy-to-remember, simple URL, without authentication. This makes linking into them from any learning platform very easy, and also allows learners to independently search and browse for them.

    143 Finally, in order to effectively teach using a collaborative approach, teachers themselves should routinely collaborate among their peers. As these templates are online, they allow teachers to collaborate in authoring material. This gives the teachers a good way of experiencing the benefits and problems of collaborative work for themselves, allowing them to better function as teachers in a collaborative learning environment.
