We found it effective outside of multimedia courses, where you might expect some exposure to authoring tools: in modern languages we found that getting students to create exercises encouraged critical thinking (about the key points, the things they found hard) and collaboration and problem solving, all good stuff, which made the learning more effective than if they had simply taken some materials. The old adage: you learn a lot when you teach.

Personally I involved students in the production of e-learning materials at the subject Multimedia systems.
They produced E-learning materials under my supervision. The focus of work is not on the content of materials,
but on the manufacturing techniques and the use of multimedia elements in the production.
In the current academic year I planned to use XOT as a tool for producing e-learning materials.
Currently I trying to provide server and software required for the job. Work with students will begin in January 2013.

I've long been a proponent of getting students to create their own content: I know some of you are too. Has anyone got any hard evidence to back up a claim that this can positively impact students learning? I have seen hard evidence before from at least two sources, one study undertaken here at Nottingham (in Modern Languages), but I can't remember where I saw the other one - was it someone here?
