Part 1 of the paper, ‘Issues in making courseware exploitable’, is about dealing with the legacy of large volumes of incompatible non‐integrated courseware which are currently being generated within initiatives such as the Teaching and Learning Technology Programme (TLTP). We suggest strategies for allowing end‐users to apply courseware management techniques belatedly to current courseware developments, thereby offering ways of making the emerging courseware more exploitable than it otherwise would be. Part 2 of the paper, ‘Issues in making exploitable courseware’, takes a forward‐looking approach which recognizes that future courseware development efforts must pre‐empt these problems of incompatibility and non‐integration. Courseware development must mature to the stage where it makes use of courseware design standards, embraces a host of essential lessons from conventional software development, and recognizes the importance of courseware management issues
