Question about RE'ing and learning schematics

Ok, so I've got a Cybertech, and I'm a little curious about something. Is it possible to use items made by other players to learn the next tier up?

Let's say I want to learn the blue version of an Armoring mod. When I craft or otherwise obtain the green version somewhere, it says there's a 20% chance to learn the schematic. However, when I pickup a player made of that same green from someone else, it says "No research available."

Can I not use the same exact item made by another player to learn the higher quality schematic?

Also, for the high end items where there are no green/blue versions, can I RE the purple to learn the schematic? Let's say I had tons of credits to blow and bought a few 26 or 27 Armorings made by someone else. Can I learn the schematic from RE'ing them? Or do they need to come from drops instead (no crafter involved)?

slot it into some gear tand pull it out, costs you a small amount of credits but you'll now be able to RE crafted mods etc for a schematic

It's really that simple? Thanks a ton for pointing that out!
