Abstract

Based on research in ten projects in a university, corporate learning, and military context, a set of dimensions is found that can help decision makers to develop strategies for reuse (Strijker, 2004). This article describes how these dimensions and their relation with human and technical aspects can be used in a reuse strategy. The dimensions can be used as a starting point to identify various aspects of reuse, but also to predict if a strategy for reuse can be successful in a certain organization. The following five different dimensions are identified: cultures within the context, learning scenarios, incentives for reuse, work processes, and how learning objects are stored. The context for each dimension can be more systems oriented or personal-oriented depending on the situation.
