Even if they're not useful for universities, learning objects are good for the military, right? Well maybe not, according to this author, who raises the following concerns: "Hard to figure out how to use them; hard to find the 'object' you need; if they are a link to an object on someone's website, the link could be dead, if you're using it in CD-ROM or for PDA-delivery, they can be useless; not centrally housed. The repositories do not refer to each other and do not cross-catalogue; there is redundancy, inconsistency, and they are often out of date; no standardization."
