Those taking part in the JISC e learning conference, may be aware of the Xerte “exhibit” in the Have a Go area.
I’ve posted before about the tool, particularly the Xerte Online Toolkits template version, and I think it has huge potential. What may not be so apparent is that Xerte is a cracking tool for creating accessible learning objects. The functions needed to add multiple access paths to components are built right in, as are personalisation tools.
Techdis have been very supportive of the tool and worked with the University of Nottingham on these developments, and have been running regular Xerte sessions on Friday afternoons.
This Friday the XerteFriday free online training session is "Introducing Xerte to your organisation" and will cover the information you need to convey to specific colleagues to get buy in across the organisation; including…
* teaching staff
* disability support / learner support staff
* technical teams
* senior managers
* staff development officers
You can join the session – 26th November 1pm – 1.45 pm (GMT) www.instantpresenter.com/techdisonline104
