ABSTRACT
This paper draws on research into repository use and use/reuse of
learning objects to identify gaps in what we currently know about
choosing and reusing online content within new contexts. It suggests
that the criteria that are used to choose between learning objects is
not well understood and that the non-technical challenges to reusing
that content may still be substantial. The author further suggests that
whether the context for reuse is a ‘blended’, or fully online educational
environment, is key to how the choice will be made and what may be
desirable (or not) in open content used within it.
