Abstract

There has been considerable interest in developing Reusable Learning Objects (RLOs) for instructional purposes. However, digital resources that can be used by Arabic learners are still very limited. The objective of this study is to explore the process of RLO development and identify factors that affect the development of RLOs for Arabic learners. This study is distinctive in the cultural context examined, and this has led to the identification of concerns that are unrecognised in previous work. Three factors affecting RLOs development process emerged in this study: social and cultural, pedagogical and technical. While the pedagogic and technical concerns are fairly well documented, social and cultural aspects are less well understood but were perceived here as being crucial to the development process of RLOs.
