Abstract

The concept of reusable learning objects is at the heart of current thinking in the field of e-learning. Despite the promise of RLOs, actual examples of successful deployment of RLO technology are thin on the ground. There are several explanations for this, some related directly to RLOs and existing, associated standards, and some related to wider technology-related and organizational issues. Despite the problems, RLOs seem to be the future, but there is however considerable work to be accomplished on all fronts -- design methodology, organizational approaches to learning and knowledge management, collaboration within sectors and industries on content model development and standards, and technology -- before the potential of learning objects and RLOs will come to fruition.
