Richard Windle, Helen Laverty and their colleagues describe a project that assessed the benefits of sharing student-generated educational material

Nursing students from seven different universities are designing e-learning resources for use by their peers and other health professionals. This article explores the use of reusable learning objects designed by students themselves on the premise that they would be better placed to understand the learning needs of their peers. The authors explain the process of capturing student-generated content and the development of that content into usable resources that are proving popular and effective.
