Macromedia Flash has always been a popular software product to use in creating multimedia applications for learning. It is particularly suitable for creating reusable learning objects which follow the framework set out in the Cisco Reusable Learning Object (RLO) strategy. This paper will examine how flash is moving towards a more open source development strategy by releasing the source code of its flash player, making its compiled Shockwave Flash file format(*.swf) more open. It will also examine how flash developers are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of sharing and reuse. Developers are releasing the source Flash file (*.fla)s of their compiled Shockwave Flash objects under the creative commons licence to facilitate reuse and learning. This will allow learning objects developed in Flash to become more reusable as educational developers can adapt the source code in the original flash file to meet the needs of their students.
