eXe Authoring project



The eXe International Advisory Group is a thought-leadership node set up to advise the eXe project on international trends, needs and strategic considerations with regards to:

  • Open Education Resources (OERs);
  • Collaborative authoring of e-Learning content using social software;
  • Interoperability and packaging of open content for different learning management systems;
  • Pedagogical customisation and recontextualisation using eXe;
  • Future feature enhancements for eXe and Mediawiki software.

Consequently, this advisory group includes leaders from the major FLOSS learning management systems as well as key players in the strategic development of emerging technologies and the open education resource movement. With due recognition to the global challenges associated with achieving the "education for all" strategic objectives, ICTs for development play an important role in this thought leadership group.

In the course of this work we used Colloquia as a test platform for a number of the emerging IMS interoperability specifications such as metadata, content packaging and enterprise. In 2004 after spending some time travelling in New Zealand I took up a post at Tairawhiti Polytechnic on the East Cape of North Island as e-learning coordinator with the aim of developing an e-learning centre of excellence at the polytechnic to provide access to education for the high number of remote learners in this rural region of New Zealand.
