I have just given a presentation about one of the online resources I have provided for students and while I was thinking about what I should say there were a number of points which were crystalised in my thinking.
The use of IT should only be to enhance teaching or learning support and it is not an end in itself. If what I produce does not add to the learner experience then it is pointless.
Research and student feedback is therefore a very important aspect of my planning and this ultimately informs what I do.
There are hundreds of elearning tools and resources available but they should be used with careful thought not just for fun or because they are available.
