Qualitative data, particularly digital video, present unique challenges for reuse. These challenges include the need for contextual data, privacy and confidentiality concerns, and technical issues involving search, data manipulation, analysis, and capture of selected scenes for teaching. In this article we examine the reuse practices of users from an educational repository and focus on the latter challenge – the ways that tools for discovery, access, and use influence data reuse among researchers, teachereducators, and teachers in practice. We identify major issues such as reusers' difficulties with video data management, the challenge of research collaborations with digital video, and preferences for common and familiar tools over specialized software to remix and/or analyze the video.
