Xerte Educational Resources

HELM Orange

Aaron has been continuing to explore the use of Xerte for the rapid development of learning resources.

Xerte offers an online creation platform with a large selection of page types that offer high levels of accessibility. This combination allows for the creation of interactive learning resources which can be accessed as standalone resources or easily integrated within the University’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).

Supporting the Division of Physiotherapy and Sport Rehabilitation

Within Aaron’s role supporting the Division of Physiotherapy and Sport Rehabilitation, Aaron has used the Xerte platform to create several Student Generated reusable learning objects (RLOs). This work also included the redevelopment of a Articulate Storyline resource.

Nociception and Pain Modulation

Topic Test Preparation

This Xerte resource offers a very similar in experience to the original version built using Articulate Storyline but with the benefit of being fully HTML based and responsive to the user’s viewport.

Redevelopment of Flash Based RLOs

Aaron has also used the Xerte to take some of the HELM Open Flash-based RLOs and allow them to become accessible once more to students within the School of Health Sciences. Some of the RLO resources are a good fit for the standard page types within Xerte, but others require more bespoke development. Xerte allows developers to write bespoke JavaScript to create the experiences required.
