A Preliminary Analysis of Software Engineering Metrics-based Criteria for the Evaluation of Learning Objects Reusability

Javier Sanz, Juan Manuel Dodero, Salvador Sánchez-Alonso


Reusability of learning objects is evaluated on the basis of a priori software reusability analysis, which are related to cohesion and coupling aspects. A number of reusability metrics extracted from metadata records are defined and analyzed to provide an aggregate reusability evaluation for learning objects in a repository. The evaluation is validated and compared with an expert-based a posteriori evaluation method
