As part of the OSTRICH project the Division for Lifelong Learning is releasing a variety of Xerte materials created for units in a Chartered Management Institute programme of study.
- In an OER on Exploring Self-Development:
- Start from where you are
- Your SWOT analysis
- In an OER on Information for Decision Making:
- Choosing an Issue
- Information to Make Decisions
Rather than make available entire units of study, the Division for Lifelong Learning team have opted to release elements of the unit. These are in the form of individual Xerte learning objects that make up interactive self-directed learning within the course.
Links to materials that are viewable online are provided, whilst a zipped version of the Xerte toolkits file is made available for those end-users wanting to edit the content for their own learning and teaching context.
These OERs are released in conjunction with a unit overview and activity plan to give a pedagogical background that would allow their reuse in similar contexts. However, their granular nature and more generic subject matter could make them easily reusable and highly compatible ‘building blocks’ for other courses of study.
