Abstract: The Reusable Learning Objects (RLO) are small, self-contained modules of learning that tackle a single concept, information, procedure or fact that can be delivered independently. To develop independent RLO for linear teaching method is a straightforward job. But the process becomes tedious for non-linear Funnel approach teaching because of two characteristics of RLO namely reusability and independent nature. The interactive multimedia is a better choice for developing e-learning software. To use these technologies for effective e-learning solutions, the developer should have in-depth knowledge of e-pedagogy, which makes the process more complicated. To develop web-based e-learning solutions the Learning Management System (LMS) is essential. The SCORM compatible RLOs are needed for LMS, which adds further overheads. The magnitude of complexity increases if these RLOs are used to simulate the teacher of programming languages. This paper describes a special technique to do this job.
