Abstract

UK Earth Science Courseware Consortium (UKESCC) interactive courseware modules are still widely used, but their continued use is diminishing principally due to their non-standard web-delivery mechanism and the fact that they were written in Authorware, which is no longer supported. Rather than allow these well-thought-out courseware modules to atrophy, a pilot project was undertaken within the larger GEES Subject Centre C-Change project to investigate the utility of converting modules using the Xerte tool kit, which is open source, freely available, and outputs to Flash. Two translation methods were utilised and demonstrate that conversion can be made as examples with three modules being converted. Translation of the remaining 18 modules will depend upon community response and available resource.
