This project was funded by the UK Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) in 2005-2007 to identify and analyse the factors that influence practical uptake and implementation of learning object repositories within a range of different learning communities.  Key outputs included a range of publications, international conference talks and seminars, and guidelines and recommendations to JISC for implementing learning object repositories.  The project was led by Allison Littlejohn, in collaboration with Anoush Margaryan and Colin Milligan in the Caledonian Academy, David Nicol, University of Strathclyde, UK, Peter Douglas, Intrallect, and Sarah Currier.
