Re-Use? Is this Re-Use?
An initiative such as the Intergeo project has the clear mission to allow
many teachers to gain easy access to resources that can support their
teaching practice when using them. Re-use then appears when the sole usage
is insufficient and needs adaptations to the specific context. This paper
investigates the common practices of re-use in computer-science
literature, describes how it was implemented in the i2geo platform, and
how the actual usage of the platform shows that the definition we first
envisioned and that is widespread is short sighted. Following the
observations of the practices, generalizations of the notion of re-use are
