In this mini-course we look at examples of how Xerte users have seemingly lost work, or had broken learning objects. We look at how to avoid this happening and what to do if it does happen.

Setting the scene – losses are rare!
Firstly let’s contextualise this issue – if used correctly lost work in Xerte is rare and corrupt learning objects are even rarer.
1. Lost changes due to multiple editor windows
In this example we look at how some users, including students, have reported working on their project only to return later and find that all those changes have been lost.
2. Broken learning object as a result of copy and paste
On very rare occasions some users report broken learning objects where none of the content plays and/or doesn’t show in the editor.
3. Broken learning object due to connectivity issues
Another occasional cause of broken learning objects has been due to connectivity issues.
