Reusability     

When thinking about reusability, one must think of standards. If you are not considering sharing your content with the world at large, at least make sure your content can be used again by you.  Comment your code and document thoroughly.  Programming code can change standards through the years and software packages can change versions.  New features in software can and do break code written years earlier.

 If you are ready to think about using your content in a larger capacity, you still need to think of standards.  Two popular standards in the world of e-learning are:

SCORM - The Department of Defense was charged with creating standards for web based learning in 1999.  It created the Sharable Content Object Resource Model

AICC - The Aviation Industry Computer Based Training Committee established standards to be used across multiple industries in computer based training.
