To provide a review of the interface between e‐learning, digital libraries and learning content.
A review of current thinking and activity surrounding the delivery of content in e‐learning systems. Some analysis of information concerns and commentary on future scenarios.
The paper investigates the reality of information management in e‐learning practice. It looks at types of information extant in systems and analyses links between (virtual) learning environments, digital libraries and web content. It examines the potential for reuse of material in a university context and the supporting standards and technology.
Looks particularly at UK and US context but also has an international dimension.
It brings together a disposable set of issues to provide a discursive but practical summary of the topic. It will be of value to an information manager faced with managing content in a learning organisation.
