ReCourse Learning Design Editor ReCourse is a tool to create IMS Learning Design compliant Units of Learning. It is free, open source, cross-platform and extensible. It was developed as part of the European-funded TENCompetence project. IMS Learning Design is extensive and complex, and there are very few effective and easy to use tools available which teachers can use to produce Units of Learning which are compliant with the specification. TENCompetence has developed ReCourse to provide learning designers with a solution.

Free and Open Source Authoring Tools for e-Learning As an e-Learning consultant I was always a fan of open source software. Why? The answer is simple. eXe The eXe project developed a freely available Open Source authoring application to assist teachers and academics in the publishing of web content without the need to become proficient in HTML or XML markup. Resources authored in eXe can be exported in IMS Content Package, SCORM 1.2, or IMS Common Cartridge formats or as simple self-contained web pages. eXe grew out of the New Zealand Government Tertiary Education Commission's eCollaboration Fund and was led by the University of Auckland, The Auckland University of Technology, and Tairawhiti Polytechnic.
