Recent concerns in integrated e-learning systems are of managing the millions of learning objects created, addressing disorganization, lack of use and reuse of these learning objects. An understanding on how learning objects should be designed, organized and used are necessary in helping lecturers when creating e-learning content to take into consideration the issues affecting the quality, availability and reusability of learning objects. This paper, therefore, aims to investigate lecturers' perceptions on the issues and challenges faced when developing, sharing and applying the learning objects in curriculum development. A study was conducted across three local educational institutions of higher learning in Singapore. The paper describes the findings and concludes with discussion on implications for the design of e-learning systems.
