This paper will discuss two work-in-progress online projects related to object-based learning in Alaska. MoliNet comes from the University of Alaska Museum of the North, an electronic catalog of museum objects links additional primary resources that provides a unique learning and teaching opportunity for teachers to integrate museum objects into their curriculum. AKART comes from the Anchorage Museum of History and Art, a series of ready-to-use, Web-based and database-driven K-12 visual art curricula for Alaskan teachers who have limited resources to teach art. Using these two projects as an example, this paper will explore theories and practices of object-based learning and most importantly examine the most appropriate use of technology in a culturally rich but geographically challenged environment.
