In this paper, an evaluation is presented of a framework that supports flexible content repurposing. Unlike the usual practice where content components, such as slides, images, definitions, text fragments, tables, or diagrams, are assembled manually through copy and paste, the framework
enables on-the-fly access and repurposing. Retrieval of relevant components is enabled by automatic decomposition of legacy content and storage of individual components, enriched with metadata. Furthermore, the automatic assembly of these components in standard authoring tools is supported. The evaluation presented in this paper aims to assess the effectiveness and efficiency of such content reuse for presentations.
