Learning Design and Reuseability

Wilbert Kraan, CETIS, Sept 02, 2003
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Another reasonable and well written CETIS article, this one discussing the commentary surrounding my Design, Standards and Reusability paper. The general response seems to be to admit that reuse, as I define it, isn't possible using learning design, but that this doesn't matter. "While the reuse-by-tweaking ethos of Learning Design won't give the full financial benefit of lift-and-run-reuseability, Sarah Currier points out that adapting an existing IMS Learning Design is much less labour intensive than starting from scratch. Provided that there will be good tools." Well, maybe, but from where I sit, that still falls far short of where we could - and should - be. So long as learning - and learning design - remains a labour-intensive process, it will become increasingly difficult over time to provide a proper education for all, and that, in the long run, has disturbing consequences.
