AbstractThere are now a number of learning repositories available for teachers to use to source content material (learning objects) to use in their teaching. How have these learning repositories come into being? How are they organized? Just what is a learning object? There are several factors which must work together to make a learning repository sustainable. In this paper these cultural, social and technical factors will be explored. Two cases will be contrasted - a struggling repository in Hong Kong and a successful digital library in the US. From this comparison, a number of key success factors emerge.
