Xerte in Health Psychology 5 – Templates

Pages Types.

I was quite interested (and sometimes dismayed) on seeing which Xerte page types the students chose and how many different page types they used in their Learning Objects.  My impression often was that they used too many and so compromised usability.

I had the intention of analysing  their choices, but having started I have decided it is too time consuming for limited benefits. Maybe someone else will want to do it with more time on their hands.

Anyway, for those interested, here are the page types used in eleven student projects.

We gave the students total freedom as to which page types they could use.  In the future we hope to introduce smaller scale Xerte projects in years 1 and 2 and I would advise for those projects that we limit the choices, perhaps using a Generative Learning Object as described in Jamie Woods’ Making Digital History blog.

Project 1.

14 pages, 9 different templates.
