Editor's Notes

  • My name is Nick and I’ve been a Repository Developer for 7 years.

    I’m not a real librarian and I mostly use Google
  • XOT is web rather than desktop based so needs to be installed on a web-server. Technical implementation is relatively straightforward however and has the advantage that it can be accessed from any networked PC rather than a small number of licensed machines as is often the case with specialised commercial software and means it can be made available to all staff, and potentially students, across an organisation and is itself a potential tool for teaching Digital Literacy13; input is form based, intuitive enough for beginners with the option to use HTML tags or more sophisticated web-based technology. It can also be embedded on any webpage using an iframe. Moreover, as output is HTML5, unlike proprietary software, content is accessible on any device/browser including mobile. Content can also be more easily reused even without access to the software itself - just by cut and paste / right click -> save as. Like any HTML webpage.

    Intro to strategic management
    Research practice methods
    Project management
    Idea is the core content modules contain tutorials, teaching materials that academic staff can repurpose for themselves
