Reusing Online Resources: A Sustainable Approach to eLearning

Simon Buckingham Shum, JIME, Apr 30, 2003
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This special issue of JIME features chapter summaries and commentary directed toward the recently published book "Reusing Online Resources: A Sustainable Approach to eLearning" edited by Allison Littlejohn. The big frustration, of course, is that the book itself isn't online (and living in a small city, it's not like I can just pop out to the local bookstore and pick up a copy). But the summaries are quite good, and interestingly, are used to prime subsequent discussion of each of the chapters. Devotees of learning objects won't find a lot that's new here: the book is mostly an overview of current applications and issues. But that also makes it a good introduction to the field and a nice launch-point for further discussion.
