It has been argued that the reuse of educational resources will contribute to the development of economies of scale in which teachers and students can create, source, and share knowledge and information. Central to this objective are Learning Object Repositories (LORs) that can support resource reuse within and across learning communities. We discuss three case studies outlining a range of actual and potential issues affecting the implementation of three different LORs. We present a framework that can support systematic identification of these issues in the design and development stage and guide future implementations of LORs.
