How to install the packaged PAS portal - coming soon
Getting started in development
The Pas Researcher pack is made up of three separate but integrated elements, the portal, the authoring environment and the learner environment. While these elements are integrated, their development so far has been achieved separately, with the learner environment being developed first by TELS, the authoring environment (which is still in beta form) also by TELS and the Pas Portal developed primarily by a developer team at OISE/UT. The loose coupling of these three elements allows development in the three areas to be relatively independent.
