Abstract

Higher inclusion rate of different media types within technology‐supported learning scenarios is becoming more necessary for higher education, as it seeks to attract more technologically‐minded students and still offer effective learning. An ‘off‐the‐shelf’ model is needed, for making third‐party, non‐text‐based, electronic resources available to academic staff who are building courses, but is shown to still be some way off. Ideally this type of model should allow independent, legal use of such resources by academic staff who rely predominantly on standardised forms of organisational services. When achieved, less‐intensive day‐to‐day support should be required per learning scenario developed so that use of different media types becomes more scaleable than at present. This paper specifically concentrates on aspects related to time‐based media (TBM).
