The XPERT (Xerte Public E-learning ReposiTory) project is an 18 month project to explore the potential of delivering and supporting a distributed repository of e-learning resources created and seamlessly published through the open source e-learning development tool called Xerte Online Toolkits (XOT). The project will empower academic authors at partner institutions to easily create open access learning resources and help foster a culture of sharing teaching and learning resources. The University of Nottingham has a well established commitment to open access content, demonstrated through the JISC funded projects such as SHERPA1 and OpenDOAR2, as well as the creation of one of the first Open Courseware initiatives in the UK (U-Now3). This project will build on this commitment and will be led by The University of Nottingham with core partners, University of Bolton and JISC TechDIS. In addition, the project team will remain open to other HE and FE institutions contributing to the XPERT project at a later stage as XOT deployments grow, and will continue to inform the wider community of XOT users worldwide. All partners are early adopters of XOT and keen to deploy this e-learning development tool in order to facilitate learning content creation and publishing to support the development of an open distributed architecture, sharing e-learning resources and providing a common information and communications environment. Through providing guidance and advice it will benefit the whole of the UK sector by exploring issues raised in the wider take-up and development of an open distributed e-learning repository in HEIs. Project start date: 2009-04-01. Project end date: 2010-10-01. (Excerpt from this source)
