Xerte online toolkits

Xerte Online Toolkits is an easy-to-use e-Learning authoring tool for producing engaging, interactive e-learning resources.

It produces Flash-based output which can stand alone or be embedded within Moodle. It will soon produce HTML5 output which will be accessible via tablet and mobile devices.

Xerte at the University

We are currently experimenting with Xerte at the University. An installation of Xerte Online Toolkits has been made available at: http://essd.bath.ac.uk/xerte3

Xerte can be accessed by logging in with your BUCS username and password.
