Now we got to learn how to play interactive

Posted on: November 1, 2013

Catalogue pcIt’s half term this week so the Learning Resources team have been beavering away creating Learning Objects with Xerte Online Toolkits to reinforce the inductions we’ve been doing with Access to Higher Education and Preaccess students on referencing and copyright.

The great thing about using Xerte to do this is it has built-in disability features so students using them can change the font size and the colour to suit their needs. Plus we can plug in audio, images and much more. We’ve started off with some fill the gaps and categories for referencing and for copyright we’ve tried the multiple choice quizzes. We’ve found it great fun adding in feedback for the multiple choice.  Find out more about what you can do with Xerte and examples of Learning Objects on the University of Nottingham’s Resources page.

Once the learning objects are ready we’re embedding them onto our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) pages so our students can do them on and offsite. If you are one of students or tutors you can see what we’ve done on the LRC Referencing and Plagiarism page.
