  • The integration between virtual and face-to-face (ftf) classroom learning is increasing. This is leading to an increase in mixed learning or blended-learning. Due to this growing trend there is a need to reuse course components between these strategies in the interest of efficiency. Additionally, the wide availability of open source software facilitates the construction of learning activities without incurring in licences expenses; activities which can then also be included in other courses. The reuse of these learning activities between virtual, ftf and mixed education may require significant efforts to adapt them if this possibility has not been considered in advance. Adoption of certain architectures and methodologies, that facilitate flexibility and reuse, can simplify this process, as proposed in this paper. A case study is presented on reusing learning activities on Management Information Systems (MIS) developed for either ftf instruction or for an edX MOOC, that are reused in courses in various learning modes: online, blended learning and face-to-face.
