Learning objectives are short-term. They describe the goals that you want students to achieve by the end of a particular unit or section of a course of study.

Learning outcomes are long-term. They describe the goals that you want students to achieve by the end of a complete course of study.

In other words, learning objectives are the small steps that are taken on the way to achieving learning outcomes.

Objectives are goals, outcomes the results.

@stanleybmanly These are technical terms used in educational theory. Both describe goals.

Past goal achieved and future goal predicted.
