This paper provides a metareview of how e-learning content is currently being produced and embedded in the learning practice in further education, work-based learning and community learning contexts. Based upon this metareview, the paper has identified four categories of content production used: (1) learner-authored content, (2) practitioner-authored content, (3) commercial- and public sector-commissioned content and (4) combinations of these categories. The metareview also identifies several well-used, practitioner-based and institutional models for embedding e-learning content into practice, exploring some of the implications of this upon practitioners.
