Having returned from leave to be greeted with “You have the most popular session of the month”, suffice to say I was rather nervous!
However, after 7 months of blood, sweat and tears, Xerte is finally up and running here in Swansea. The purpose of today’s session was to explain what Xerte is, what it does and why it is useful to staff in their teaching.
In short, it has accessibility features aplenty, it has scope for collaboration, sharing and peer review and it has a vast range of multimedia options available. Not to mention that it allows for flipping the classroom, formative assessment in the form of basic quizzes.
The session also outlined some of the training sessions that we will be running, both on the Park and Bay campuses.
I hope that the people who attended the session and who watched it via live streaming saw enough to whet their appetites, and are interested in following it up.
