Abstract

This paper investigates the conference theme of 'new roles of the instructor and learner' by drawing on work I am involved in at the UK's Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning in Reusable Learning Objects or RLO-CETL for short. I will use the term 'user generated contexts' to denote a hybrid combination of three elements: (i) networks surrounding reusable learning objects (RLOs), (ii) user generated content and (iii) mobile devices; and in particular to indicate that this combination enables novel forms of reuse and learning on the move. I examine issues surrounding the emergence of user generated context from a formal and informal learning viewpoint. As well as presenting various conceptual perspectives, I will also look at empirical work being conducted by the RLO-CETL that is aimed at identifying and documenting the possibilities for user generated context. I will conclude the paper by examining the wider issues for user generated contexts.
