Choosing and re-using learning content: Why neither is as easy as it sounds
Pegler, Chris

PublishedOctober 2007
ConferenceOpenLearn 2007, 30-31 Oct 2007

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.
