Learning Objects and Web 2.0 Applications

I have been spending a great deal of time learning about "learning objects" from a site called Merlot.

Wikepedia defines a learning object as:I would like to see any web 2.0 application have a learning object defined for it just like we reference an RSS feed or other media link for a site today.

If it is a web application that is fairly complex or even simple it should have at least a basic set of learning objects for it that the average user can use to learn more about the application or a teacher can use to integrate into their classroom curriculum.

This is something I would like to work more on as part of the Social Media Squad and meeting its mission of Translating 2.0 to the Real World.
