In this paper we present a comprehensive framework supporting the tasks of defining, retrieving, and importing Learning Objects (LOs) for personalized courses. It is partially implemented in a Moodle-based personalization system, where the instructional designer is guided through: 1) a theoretical specification of the needed LOs; 2) a retrieval function of actual LOs, by automatically querying standard-compliant repositories; 3) an analysis of such items, to import those selected by him, also adding metadata relevant to the personalization system, at hand. This work overcomes some well known shortcomings of the Moodle system in supporting retrieval of learning material in a personalization context.
