Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

Open Education Cup: Module Exemplars

Module by: Connexions. E-mail the author

Summary: This module provides an introduction and links to several exemplar modules that illustrate how to make effective use of Connexions and highlight various CNXML features.

The following pages provide a few examples of content that is available in the Connexions repository. These modules were chosen in order to illustrate specific features of the site and the ways authors are able to leverage CNXML in order to create powerful yet flexible educational content. We encourage you to review these modules and use them as a starting point for ideas as you prepare your contest entries.
