Xerte and HTML5

I went to the Xerte conference a couple of weeks ago and heard the great news that they are developing HTML5 pages to add to their diverse list of templates.  For those of you who don’t know  about xerte, it’s an e-learning Object development system that is designed by teaching staff in conjunction with the University of Nottingham, is freely available and is easy to use.

I’ve had a go at developing some HTML5 ‘games’ recently and have linked them in to Xerte just to show how this might work.  The integrated HTML5 pages will be along shortly, but for now, here’s some examples to be looking at:

Xerte Screen


As ever, Internet Explorer isn’t fully compliant  so the slide viewer can do a few strange things – but I’m working on it!

    Hello, I was wondering how did you do the jigsaw puzzle. Is there a jigsaw option in the new Xerte online toolkits or did you use drag and drop. I am very curious about it.

    Thank you for your post.

    Hi Sam,

    It is an embedded Flash file in this case, generated via Swishmax 4,

    – available at http://www.swishzone.com/

    which is a cut-down flash object generator (and therefore useful for my simple mind!) though you can do something similar using HTML5. If anyone knows of a good ‘offline’ and free jigsaw generator please let me know.
