This conceptual paper describes the teaching and learning of technical subjects based on the learning objects and mobile persuasion. Learning object is popular due to its potential reusability that will save cost of development, especially for online learning. While most of the research on learning object looks at the reusability and interoperability for economical reasons, this paper will focus on the development and design instruction for learning objects, as a small component that will support the learning process of at-risk learners in an open and distance learning environment. While mobile persuasion, based on the Short Messaging Services (SMS) technology, will focus on how to motivate the at-risk learners to be self-directed learners. This paper will outline the design of learning objects and mobile persuasion for at-risk learners. The research outcome is expected to help and support at-risk learners to improve their academic performance. (Abstract by authors)
