One size does not fit all and so there is increasing pressure on educators to create curriculum specific e-content. What may first appear like a simple technical process is actually quite complex and requires careful planning and costing if the end product is to be of value to learners. A wide range of expertise and resources are often required beyond what is available in the education community, and so there is a need for partnerships with industry and researchers to explore emerging technologies that could be potentially useful in teaching and learning. GeSCI hopes that this tool continues to prove helpful to partners who are considering developing their own e-content artifacts for educational use.
