Reusability of learning objects

in reponse to Learning Design and reuseability
Learning objects with incorporated learning design may work well in situations where pedagogy is dictated from the top (e.g. corporate training, military, government). Reuse of such objects outside of these contexts seems problematical for many reasons. The point was raised that individual instructors may wish to tweak existing learning objects to their own design taste. It seems to me that instructors' main concerns should be with content however; perhaps learning design is at least in part) better customized for the individual learner.
I think of the possibility of learning design as a presentation layer applied to content. Advantages of this approach would maximize both reusability of existing content, and customization and flexibility of learning design.
