Is this what Second Life is coming too?
Reuse is using the learning object virtually as it is with a different group of learners and/or for a different qualification. In some cases additional materials will be presented alongside the original learning object.
For example using an object on customer service for Hospitality and using it with Business students
Repurposing can mean a variety of processes. From using a substantial part of the learning object with additional learning content to disaggregating the learning object and using components within a completely new learning object.
For example using a video clip from an object on health and safety for Hairdressing and using it within a new learning object for Business students.
