This is the organization which published/produced/funded the learning object. Most of the time it will be an entity such as University, school, company, etc. Please note that the provider is where the learning object is hosted. It must not be mistaken with the publisher which is the organization that produced/funded the learning object. The author is a person who contributed to make the learning object. So for example if we have a MOOC from Coursera with professor X from Stanford, then we would have: - provider is coursera - publisher is stanford - author is professor X On the other hand, if the learning object is an article hosted on stanford website by professor Y, then we would have - provider is stanford - publisher is stanford - author is professor Y
