templates can be re-purposed with the user's own content to create on-line
Learning Design compliant resources. The LD Editor is available from the download
available is an ADL SCORM Player. This toolkit allows the playing of SCORM 1.2

is a free, open source VLE that supports group working based on setting up learning
groups on specific topics (context). Each learning group can involve users of
different roles (teachers and learners), the use of learning objects, group
tasks and individual assignments. The colloquia page
provides more information and access to the software.
