Most studies on reusable digital learning materials, Learning Objects (LOs), relate to their use in universities. Few empirical studies exist to explore the impact of LOs on pedagogy, especially in schools. This paper provides evidence from an evaluation of the use of LOs in schools. The evidence is from an EU-funded project Context e-Learning with Broadband Technologies, involving 500 schools in six countries across Europe, in a pilot to examine the impact of LOs on pedagogy. It brought together producers and users to try out technically and pedagogically sound ways of producing, making available through a portal, and using LOs. This paper reports data from both quantitative and qualitative studies conducted during 2004, including: online surveys (of the teachers involved); routine data from the portal; semi-structured interviews in 40 schools in all six countries; 13 classroom observation studies in selected schools in four countries; and three experimental studies in Finland.
