Xerte Educational Resources
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).
Latest Xerte Resources
Aaron continues to utilise Xerte in his role as a learning technologist in the School of Health Sciences, creating resources but also supporting others to create resources within the Xerte platform. Here is a selection of Aaron's latest Xerte resources.
