Xerte online toolkits was used to produce the individual units.

Xerte toolkits is an open source product which provides a server-based suite of tools for content authors. Elearning materials can be authored using browser-based tools and wizards, with no programming required. Xerte allows collaborative authoring and completed tutorials can be re-used and repurposed.

More information about Xerte toolkits at: http://www.jisctechdis.ac.uk/xerte

Re-using the units

The URL links for each of the units is available within the modules tab.   Links can be embedded into an institutions own learning space, as long as attribution is given under the creative commons licence.

Re-purposing the units

If you have an instance of Xerte toolkits installed you can download the zip file and insert into your own Xerte toolkit.  This allows you to change the content to suit your institutions needs.  Please give attribution for the original work under the creative commons licence.  Scorm files are also available to download if you wish to integrate the toolkit into a VLE and integrate with grade books or similar.

The files for the units are available within Jorum to facilitate re-use.  Please click on the links below to move across to the record in Jorum, from which you can download the relevant Scorm 1.2 and/or the Zip file.
