So I had another bash with Xerte and built a little LO on OR Gates. I like to compare the outputs of content creation tools with the Reference model of NLN Materials… 10 years ago we made some useful resources, and I used the NLN logic gate objects many times as an introduction before a practical with agricultural engineering students. What’s interesting is that with a handful of assets I can accomplish in half an hour what the NLN programme probably took months to complete to “GOLD” release.
Sadly some of the old assets don’t work these days, there are a couple of flash objects which are just too old, however I happen to know they can be transcoded and saved in a more up to date version, having used some of them in my work with the Interactive Whiteboard Common File Format.
Maybe I’ll revisit this LO and fix it some time.Xerte Online Toolkits really is a rather powerful set of tools, and I’ve only touched on some of the more obvious templates.
Have a look at the LO I created: http://xerte5.techdis.palepurple.co.uk/play_5399
Xerte Online toolkits are just one of the items in the Have a Go area of the Online conference. The Conference runs from the 23rd – 26th November 2010, BUT the pre-conference activity and reading week opens on 16th November 2010 and offers a chance to become familiar with the conference environment and try out innovative JISC projects in the ‘have-a-go’ area.
See you there!
Book online – early registration advisable for full participation in the pre-conference week
