Starting out with Xerte Online Toolkits

June 18th, 2020 at 03:06

Xerte Online Toolkits is an Open Source content creation tool that allows non-technical users such as academic staff to quickly and easily build rich, interactive and engaging online learning resources with high levels of accessibility already built in. If Microsoft PowerPoint is a specialist program for creating presentations to deliver in the classroom, then you can think of Xerte Online Toolkits  as a specialist program for creating learning resources for students to use online,

The Xerte Project places three values above all else:

  • ease of use for teachers;
  • providing best of breed accessibility;
  • nurturing a positive and friendly community of users and developers.

Xerte was created at the University of Nottingham and is currently overseen by the Apereo Foundation as open source. It is used in thousands of colleges, schools and universities across the globe. At the University of Nottingham it is available to all users and is fully supported.
