Abstract

The aim of this paper is to provide a new perspective on the Reusability Paradox,focusing on the learner's active role. We argue that learners have some ability to adapt the learning experience to suit their own needs and it is therefore possible to create learning objects that are both reusable and pedagogically effective. Our approach is influenced by our experience of creating X e-packs, online language learning materials, which have been successfully used by a variety of learners in diverse educational contexts. We introduce some general pedagogical principles fostering active language learning that can be adapted to other subjects, and show in detail how these principles have been put into practice in the design of e-packs.
