eXe: eLearning XHTML editor. ‘The eXe project is developing a freely available authoring application to assist teachers and academics in the publishing of web content without the need to become proficient in HTML or XML markup. eXe can export content as self-contained web pages or as SCORM 1.2 or IMS Content Packages.
The eXe project was conceived to address the use of technology in the design and authoring of learning resources for the web. Initial research showed that while there are many web authoring tools available their usability and sophistication varied considerably. We identified the need for a tool to specifically assist teachers and academics to publish professional looking web pages according to the structure and form required for good teaching, and in such a way that this content could be integrated with existing LMS applications.
The eXe project proposal was awarded development funding from the Tertiary Education Commission of New Zealand in 2004. Essentially the eXe project looks to build a simple to use editing environment whose architecture is pedagogically robust thereby adding value to existing learning systems.’
