Until recently computer-based teaching materials have been intrinsically tied to their run-time environment meaning that as the environment is superseded by changes in the underlying technologies these materials become redundant and unusable. The RECAL Project based at the University of Edinburgh is in the process of developing a methodology by which learning materials are not being constantly lost in this way. Based on abstracting the content and sequencing of a program the RECAL architecture and approach can offer developers and academics a way out of this continuous cycle of recreating or losing aging teaching materials.
