Excellent case study from the eTeam, part of the Centre for Academic Practice and Learning Development (CAPLeD) at UWS. This case study highlights how the institution have taken a strategic approach to embedding the use of Xerte. This case study features the work that IT/Network staff installed their own instance of Xerte, how the eTeam introduced Xerte and offered training to staff. The case study also features how academic staff have used Xerte within their curriculum and in addition how learners have accessed and also created their own content using Xerte.
Created by Ron Mitchell of Michellmedia, this resource provides an insight into each Xerte Toolkit page. It demonstrates the different options within each of the the text, media, navigator, chart, interactivity and games groupings and gives authors an idea of what each page looks like.
What is the reality of getting learners to create their own content using Xerte toolkits? What sort of results might you expect? What kind of support is needed? What do the learners think about the process?
Terry McAndrew from Jisc TechDis lead the session, referencing real-life people and projects that put students at the heart of learning.
With large organisations needing to demonstrate compliance with the Disability Equality Duty, Xerte Online Toolkits are an excellent and cost effective way of combining inclusion needs with staff development in high quality content creation. Xerte can provide rich information for learners at entry level or undergraduate level or for staff development. It is simple enough for learners to create their own revision materials.
Xerte training resources from Ron MItchell. This resouerce provides some short screencasts offering insights into different elements of Xerte.
Ron Mitchell of Mitchellmedia has been working independently and with TechDis and Nottingham University helping to develop, promote and support Xerte for quite a while now so it seemed appropriate that he establish a dedicated Xerte page linking to various resources and examples etc.
This site is developed by and for the international community of Xerte toolkit users working at every stage of education. Xerte toolkits is a free, open source content creation tool. Every tutor and every learner in your organisation can create interactive content with rich media and high accessibility.
A community website developed by and for the Xerte community providing information on accessibility, offering examples of effective practice and information for quality managers, for tutors, IT teams and for disability/inclusion teams.
An excellent example of the website version of Xerte. This template has narrower range of page types associated with it but it is optimised for mobile devices. Whilst most of the Xerte toolkit page types (with the exception of things like FlashPaper pages) will work on mobile browsers the small size of the screen means that some of the more exciting interactivities like hotspot diagrams and drag-and-drop pages can be difficult to use effectively on some phones, though they work brilliantly on tablets. As people drift towards BYOD, the Xerte website template could become increasingly important.
