WCKER - Wizard Construction Kit Extension for Reload

The WCKER project has created an easy to use tool which takes you through a step by step process to specify and author standards compliant e-learning materials. By working through the WCKER process you can generate a course specification document, a set of html files of content, and an IMS Content Package and manifest that allows you drop your output into any compatible VLE.

As a user-friendly layer built onto the JISC funded RELOAD project, WCKER allows for the creation of bespoke wizards which define the design of a suite or programme of courses. Once the user has followed the straightforward editing process, the tool creates a set of files ready for authoring or even partially authored. The WCKER also maps information submitted into the metadata of the IMS XML content packaging manifest file thereby marking-up the course structure with relevant information for digital repositories.
