|Abstract: ||The Estonian eFlora is an example of the new e-learning
tools prepared by the KeyToNature consortium. It is an interactive digital
identification key for more than 1000 plant species recorded from Estonia.
The tool is freely available on the internet - in Estonian and English - and has
two interfaces (dichotomous and multi-entry), which allow the identification of
species using different approaches. Another tool developed by KeyToNature,
the OpenKeyEditor, allows users not only to edit the text of the existing master
key, but also to produce mini-keys restricted to smaller subsets of taxa (e.g.
the plants of a park, or a scool garden), and to add user-generated content to
them. The reaction to these tools from public media and educational circles
has been very positive.|
