A seminar, “A Roadmap for Technology Enhanced Learning Implementation at UKZN”, presented by Prof Rupert Ward (University of Huddersfield , UK) took place at the UTEL TV studio on the 27 August 2018.

Rupert Ward engaged in a discussion with academics who are keen to make use of technology enhanced and blended learning approaches in education. In particular, this session focussed on:

  • why academics are reluctant to use technology even though it is easily available at no cost
  • why students do not find the time to watch multimedia materials on line
  • if they do, does this improve their understanding of key concepts?
  • should entire lectures be captured in classrooms and distributed?
  • benefits of video recording lectures and distributing them on line
  • how video materials may be made interesting in the manner they are produced
