This guide offers best practice in delivery methods, sourcing, creating and more importantly using digital media to enhance teaching and learning and highlighting the pedagogical benefits. It will also consider the legal aspects of using digital media within an educational context and provide guidelines on accessibility issues.
This guide is designed for staff involved in the design and delivery of teaching and learning materials at all levels and anyone engaged in enhancing the teaching and learning experience.
Digital media can provide a more personalised learning experience with students being able to recap and pause at their own pace, as well as providing an inclusive experience for learners with physical or learning difficulties.
“The provision of multi-media resources not only facilitates own-pace learning but it is also inclusive of all different types of learner, including those with different learning difficulties, disabilities and international students.”
Lage et al, 2000
