This paper describes an innovation in learning content management systems (LCMS) and learning content strategy: the distributed content model. The model is defined as a scheme in which a number of virtual or actual repositories are linked through parent-child relationships. Under this scheme, certain groups (a child environment) may access content created by other groups (parent environments), and integrate or sequence that content with their own, without acquiring the ability to edit or modify the content derived from the parent. An example of how this scheme would be applied to advantage is provided, based on the fields of aviation and aerospace. Some of the challenges posed by a distributed content model are then addressed, including security and the problem of locating useful content in a parent environment described, potentially, by a "foreign" or unfamiliar metadata scheme. On-going research concerning solutions for these challenges is described briefly.
